I originally set up an equipment profile using telescope ‘LX200GPS/R ASCOM’ as the connection. Then I discovered that with this setting I could only connect one item to the ASCOM LX200GPS but I needed to give the telescope control to a planetarium program as well. I have yet to change the profile to ‘POTH hub’ to allow joint telescope access. Meanwhile, I have twice clicked on ‘connect’ before remembering - and each time SGP crashes.
I normally start the POTH hub before any connections are made and I have not yet edited the profile to change the telescope connection. Ideally I would not have wanted to use POTH because it is one more variable in the chain. However, during testing (and possibly well after), I need to drive the scope to test targets and to check focusing. Once I have learned it all I might be OK using named sequence lists, but there is much testing/learning to do yet - hence the planetarium program.
