Newbie here, just got my Hyperstar from Starizona and eager to get started. Any threads on best windows software for this combo?

I'm just relatively starting out in my astrophotography journey, so take this with a grain of salt. I have an 8SE on the alt-az mount. I use CPWI (free) from Celestron for mount/ focuser control and EOS Utility (also free) from Canon. Digital Professional (I think that's the name) is also free from Canon for editing. That being said, I have recently downloaded Astrophotography Tool (APT). Still trying to figure out how to use it, but so far it seems pretty nice. Backyard EOS is another alternative for camera control.
