    SkyFi with a Pi

    So that no one else makes the same mistake or in case I am mistaken and someone can correct me ... Spent a day trying to get this mod/hack to work with my HEQ5 connected directly to a Raspberry Pi vi an EQDirect usb to serial adapter. Couldn't work out why SkySafari couldn't see the mount - I set it as an Orion Sirius as I believe this mount is identical to the HEQ5. Anyway, it looks like the SynScan handset is essential for this to work - SkySafari won't talk to the mount directly. See also: Cheers, Ed
