Is there a reference place for guidance as to how to write a driver for a Celestron AS/GT (ASCOM) Telescope Control Server Library?



Python tcp coomunication with Stellarium

I'd like to write a 'scope RA/DEC position reporter to Stellarium in python. The system uses GWR angle sensors and an Arduino Decima AVR microcontroller board. The python socket write function sends a string. Can Stellarium accept a string? If so, what should the string look like? This is an inexpensive and easy modification of 1989 vintage 8" Meade that should facilitate finding celestial objects. I'm getting a little to old for the contortions required using finder scopes and a full computerization is to expensive. Ben
