The Paramount Software Suite that is shipped with the newer model Paramount mounts (including the Paramount ME II, Paramount MX, Paramount MX+, Paramount MYT and Paramount Taurus) has always come with macOS and Windows versions of TheSkyX Professional Edition, not to mention the Camera Add On, the Multi-OS and Six License Add On, and the TPoint Add On.
Beginning in March 2017, the Paramount Software Suite thumb drive also includes TheSkyX Pro for Linux and TheSkyX Pro for Raspbian (for Raspberry Pi computers).
This means Paramount owners get native, out-of-the-box, cross platform support for mount, camera, focuser, filter wheel, rotator, AO device, and dome* control.
The Paramount Software Suite controls your mount, camera,
focuser, filter wheel, rotator, and even your dome using macOS, Windows, Linux,
or a Raspberry Pi.
The Paramount Software Suite represents a significant milestone for Software Bisque in our quest to provide you with cross-platform, integrated, scriptable astronomy and observatory control software. You now have even more freedom to choose the operating system you want to use in your observatory, remote site, or research program.
More good news: If you already own a Paramount mount, and, provided your Multi-OS and Six License Add On subscription is current, or have a current Universal Subscription, you can download TheSkyX Pro for Linux and TheSkyX Pro for Raspbian now.
*In addition to the standard software suite described above, the Paramount ME II and Paramount Taurus mounts also include the Dome Add On.
Important Note: The original Paramount ME did not include the Paramount Software Suite. If you own a Paramount ME, and want to use TheSkyX Pro for Linux, or TheSkyX Pro for Raspberry Pi, you'll need to upgrade to TheSkyX Professional Edition, and also purchase the Multi-OS and Six License Add On.
