Plug-Ins

Our legacy installer includes our old ASCOM driver QSI Installer (.zip) 30.9MB v1.0.0.3. Read more about INDI and download the free driver from the INDI website. This ASCOM driver allows ASCOM clients to connect to SynScan App running on Windows, Android or iOS. After installation, choose 'SynScan App Driver' as your telescope in the ASCOM client's ASCOM Telescope Chooser. SynScan App version 1.00 or above is required.

Most of these plug-ins provde ASCOM compatibility with Software Bisque TheSky 6. Do not use any of the plugins here with TheSky X. For more information see the FAQ Working with TheSky (section 2).

The separate plug-ins that were here have been removed, as Software Bisque now provides access from TheSky X to all ASCOM devices. Please upgrade your copy of TheSky X to the latest version.
