Clive,

You're fine to carry on using your handset for mount control. APT will just control your camera / focuser if required  :thumbup:

APT will also do plate solving Clive so you should consider using Stellerium for accurate GoTo  ;)

HI Clive, if you open APT at the top right hand side , you see a question mark , hit that you will find the Manual
