I have decided to purchase Starry Night Pro 8 plus. (Software)
I have poured the concrete pad for a new observatory (did so fall of 2021), and I will get the new observatory built/completed sometime during the summer of 2022. At the moment, there is still about 8' of snow on the pad, so I am not building anything for a few months!
I am going to be purchasing a new laptop, when the observatory is built and operational, to run the Starry Night software, but FOR NOW, I want to install Starry Night software on a computer - which I have now - you know, to set it up and 'try' to connect it to my EQ8 mount - get used to the software and hopefully make the link between the laptop I have now and the EQ8. This will be a temporary setup.
My question: will you allow me to install the Starry Night Pro 8 software on the NEW computer - when it's purchased this fall - of 2022 OR do I have to purchase a second license to install it on the NEW computer?
I understand business and I am not against paying for a second license if this is necessary, I just want to be sure that I have asked the question before I make the purchase. I know that there are SCAMMERS out there who are always looking to take advantage: I'm not one of these people, but I am retired and an old fellow, so I must be a little bit careful with my funds. If there is a new installation license required, then I need to know the approximate price - please.
It may be prudent to just wait until the summer of 2022 and when I purchase the new laptop, then purchase Starry Night Pro 8 and then install it once on the new laptop.
Thanks for your help.
(Gosh, I hope that it's not too difficult to connect Starry Night 8 Pro on a new laptop and then make a hardwired connection to the EQ8? I'll let you know how that goes. :0)) )
