  1. If you dont have a crimper tool (assuming you have a soldering iron), you could chop, solder and sleeve with heatshrink. I would probably put a layer of self amalgamating tape over it as well.
  2. You could always chop your existing one down (carefully) .
  3. We use UltraVNC at work, no internet required and it allows file transfer.
  4. Last time I went Pi hunting I picked couple up from CEX, think I paid £20. Gives an option if nobody on here has one, CEX are doing click and collect (store stock dependent) .
  5. good point. There is a legacy driver (pre 2010) on the originally linked website. Myles, did you try the win7 64bit one? Startech usb serial with a ftdi chip is £18.21 on amazon. have to say life is way too short to muck about with flaky usb serial adapters. When we need a lot of serial ports at work we use 16 port Digi edgports, over 10 years old and still going strong. We cab have multiples of these stacked up each connected to serial outputs on sensors.
  6. D300 has a mirror lock up function. You would need to be bale to program a mirror lock up pause on your intervalometer.
  7. Try downloading the alternative win7 64bit driver. Unzip it into a folder and then point the driver update dialogue in device manager at the folder. Win7 drivers can often work in Win10. But if your doing anything where your going to depend on the adapter I would highly recommend getting a good brand one, I use a lot of Startech stuff at work, on expensive projects and they havent failed me yet, the projects involve capturing data serial times a second over several months. Startech one will cost you about £18, or can grab another brand and test it for you and send as a late
  8. What happens when you plug it in? Windows has a lot of drivers built in, check in device manager and see if it appears and is working. If you get stuck I can send you one that definitely works in win10, have a few laying around.
  9. You can get the EOS utility from the Canon HK website, its the full version not an update https://hk.canon/en/support/0200584002/1
  10. Just a quick thanks for making this video. Its inspired me and a friend from work, just had a text that he's picked up a SW 200p dob.
  11. Hi mate, and hello from another bit of Kent. I am over towards Tonbridge.
  12. If you have an android phone look for an app called synscanit (there is probably an apple version alternative), it will take you through setting the synscan controller up and give you the coordinates in the right format.
  13. You should be able to pickup a used HEQ5 for £500
  14. I can lend you some TP link ones if you want to try them. Have run them for a couple of years then shifted to BT mesh when I had FTTP installed.
