Would you like to bypass the hand controller and control your EQ Series Equatorial Mount directly from a computer? Then you need to install EQASCOM and purchase an EQDIRECT USB to TTL serial cable. Why pay $75 or more when you can purchase a Sidereal Trading EQDIRECT cable for $50.
Three models are available:
The EQDIRECT-USB-DB9 is compatible with EQ6/NEQ6 Pro Series mounts and provides a 5V TTL serial signal via a DB9 connector.
The EQDIRECT-USB-RJ-5V is compatible with HEQ5/AZ-EQ6/EQ8 and provide a 5V TTL serial signal via a RJ45 connector
The EQDIRECT-USB-RJ-3.3V is compatible with AZ-EQ6/EQ8 and provide a 3.3V TTL serial signal via a RJ45 connector
All cables are based on the FTDI USB to serial chipset for maximum compatibility with your operating system.
