NexControl is a simple Perl program that controls a Celestron NexStar series telescope. It should work on any other platform that supports Perl and /dev serial ports. As of 2005, development on this project has stopped.
Release Notes: This version added the ability to report back in human readable form, corrected the math, and added some help. It is now possible to get the RA/Dec and Alt-Az locations from the scope, and check status and alignment. Coordinates to direct the telescope to can be specified in hex.
