Should work just fine, over the years I've used a Meade DSI pro, TIS DMK21au618.as mono, DBK21au618.as OSC, and currently a qhy5L-II mono. All were used with various aperture and FL guide scopes usually run piggy back style with the imaging OTA. You can download Craig Stark's PHD Here:

download here:

PHD works with all sorts of webcams, planetary Cams, CCD Cam, dedicated guider camera, etc. Either with their native drivers or via an ASCOM driver. Same for compatible mounts and guide interfaces. Also there is a PHD2 from another developer with some more functional extras, but I have found PHD to to just fine. Just go take a look at the web page for PHD, download it and get busy, you'll have to fugure out what xtras you may need in the way of an interface between computer and mount. I used Shoestring Astronomy's GPUSB with my LXD75, Vixen GPD, and just straight hook up via the CAT line and Gemini.net ASCOM on my Losmandy Mounts. All of the software mentioned is freeware although if you like it and it works good for you there is a link on the download pages to make a gratuity donation.. I do & if people use it and like it they probably do too.

CS!
