MaxPoint models errors in your telescope mount, and automatically corrects these errors to improve your pointing accuracy. This is extremely useful when working with the limited field-of-view of many cameras.
MaxPoint works as an ASCOM Hub: you connect MaxIm DL to it, and it connects to the telescope. That way it is able to intercept all commands send to the mount and automatically correct them. You can also connect other ASCOM capable programs to MaxPoint at the same time, allowing multiple programs to access the same telescope mount.
MaxPoint is available bundled with MaxIm DL in the MaxIm DL Pro Suite. You can download a MaxPoint trial from http://www.cyanogen.com
