Hello, especially to Meade software engineers,


I am a Windows Phone Software developer and would like to develop an Autostar Handbox App.


My idea is to control the telescope through Wifi utilizing a connected Laptop or perhaps later a Serial-Wifi Server.


I do consider 2 approaches:

1. Utilize the the "Netscope" Server tool

2. Write my own TCP-COM relay


For the first Option I Need some kind of an API to talk to Netscope because sending commands directly through putty doesn't work except for the Password request.

Sent a direct e mail to Meade for you.

They are aware of your suggestion.
