DESCRIPTION

This library implements the serial commands supported by the Celestron

SkyWatcher: EQ5, HEQ5, EQ6 (Pro), AZ-EQ5 GT, AZ-EQ6 GT, EQ8 etc. and the

Communication to the hand control is 9600 bits/sec, no parity and one
stop bit via the RS-232 port on the base of the hand control.

Communication can be established over TCP/IP if nexbridge is running
on the computer connected to the telescope.

To control network based telescopes nexbridge must be used on the remote site.
