 +====== Sidereal tech mounts ======
 +
 +Sidereal manufactures two distinct controllers - Sidereal I and II, and Force One. Both share the same protocol, described on Sidereal pages.
 +
 +Force one are strictly ACS - all commands need to be send with checksum. Some older I and II controllers does not support checksum at all, and need to be run in ASCII only mode.

 +===== Driver setup =====
 +
 +**rts2-teld-sitech-gem** is a generic German equitorial mount. You will need .ini file with default values to make it work correctly.
 +
 +There is sample .ini for APM GEMs. You need to save this into file and add it as --defaults to rts2-teld-sitech-gem:​
