Operating several Dragonflies

Having any number of Dragonflies in the same network is no problem as long as each one has its own network name - something you can set from the "Controller configuration" (available from the configuration):

Lunatico Astronomia

If you want to command more than one from the same PC, just using the control panel window, it is fine; you can change the "Connect with controller name" back an forth and access any number of them.

But, if you use automation, ASCOM and / or scripting, then you need a special version of the software (so the windows automation objects have a different name).

For a second dragonfly (I don't expect anyone needing three!), please install this version:

It will install in a different folder, "connect to" will default to "dragonfly2" and internal port 10001.

Lunatico Astronomia

Regarding scripts, there are some examples, it is the same but the object is "Dragonfly2nd", so: set dfly = CreateObject("Dragonfly2nd.Help")       ... and so on. 

ASCOM dome is not supported in this "2nd" version, so please use your first or main Dragonfly for ASCOM automation.
