Before making a connection there is need to make some configurations in Stellarium:
 
  • In Cofigurations->Plugins make sure that "Remote Control" plug-in is configured as "Load at startup" (restart Stellarium after enabling). After that click on "configure" and enable the options "Server enabled" and "Enable automatically on startup"
     
  • In Cofigurations->Plugins make sure that "Oculars" plug-in is configured as "Load at startup" (restart Stellarium after enabling).
     
  • In "Oculars" configuration go to "Sensors" tab and define a new sensor or edit one of the existing. All the needed data can be found in the Object Calculator (for CCD/CMOS a connection is needed in order to determine the pixels count). Enter the number of the sensor in the APT settings. The first sensor is 0, the second 1 and so on (the index is zero based).
     
  •  In "Oculars" configuration go to "Telescope" tab and define a new sensor or edit one of the existing. Enter the number of the telescope in the APT settings. The first scope is 0, the second 1 and so on (the index is zero based).
