Serial Direct Interface Cable for HEQ5/EQ6/Sirius/Atlas (EQMOD)

Serial Direct Interface Cable for HEQ5/EQ6/Sirius/Atlas (EQMOD)
The EQDIR-SERIAL (EQDIRECT for EQMOD) cable is designed to interface a PC or laptop directly to the latest generation of Synta HEQ-5 and EQ-6 mounts which use the SynScan handcontroller. These also include the Orion Sirius EQ-G and Orion Atlas EQ-G.

The cable replaces the factory hand controller and allows direct control of the mount's stepper motors. More information on the EQ Direct method can be found in the Yahoo EQMOD Group (http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/EQMOD/) or on the EQ Mod website (http://eq-mod.sourceforge.net).

Please note that an additional adapter (EQDIR-HEQ5) must be used to convert to the RJ45 connector used on the Synta HEQ5 and the Orion Sirius mounts.

Features:

  • Finer control over your mount than the Synscan hand controller
  • Replaces a damaged or lost Synscan controller at a fraction of the cost
  • Works with all ASCOM compatible software
The ASCOM platform can be downloaded here.
The EQMOD EQASCOM telescope driver can be downloaded here.

All downloads are now available in the DOWNLOAD section of the XAGYL Astro website.
