  8. Hi All, I have a question regarding the new stellarium , up till now I have been useing Carte du ciel for my guiding & many other things. The new version of stellarum is really interesting and worth a try.. I managed to setup the software etc, now the fun begins. 1: I have a eq6 mount, with synscan hand control, Eqmod drivers. I have set up all the details in Stellarium. When moving to a object, nothing happens.. do I need special drivers when I use stellarium? 2: When I was useing carte du ciel, before I started I had to syncronise on one star and after that i could move to a object I wanted.. do I have this option on stellarium?, or where is my mistake?.. I would be gratefull for any advice... Cu John
  9. Hi Steve, Glad you got it all sorted out..... its all a matter of mind, ..if you don,t mind it dosn,t matter.. Clear sky,s and plenty of Photo,s Cu John
  10. Hi Steve & Jim. I noticed on the BackyardEOS Supports Canon DSLR Models! Quote: 350D / XT DIGIC II yes (serial) No Usb... So I,am right in thinking, you need a serial adapter... Hope it works out Ok Steve, don,t give in mate.. Cu John
  11. Steve, What type of cable do you have, any chance of having a look at your setup.. Foto,s may help me to see whats going on.. If the camera is Ok, then the rest is no prob.. Cu John
  12. Hi Jim , here is the web site from which I made the circuit.. Unfortunatly I don,t have any Gold over here, but plenty Ic,s... If you & steve fancy building one, I can send you over the Ic,s..( You only need to pay the Post).. What is important , that the tip of the plug sends the right signal, you need to check this with a Multymeter, that when attached to Bye, it triggers of the camera. Here is a Foto of mine..B,t,W I have taken the Video off Dropbox.. https://www.dropbox.com/s/3fcmslv02vcfc92/test%20001.JPG http://www.google.de/imgres?q=serial+adapter+canon&um=1&sa=N&hl=de&biw=1643&bih=847&tbm=isch&tbnid=2EbhDXpUMYlzlM:&imgrefurl=http://www.beskeen.com/projects/dslr_serial/dslr_serial.shtml&docid=jGZsn3aV-tdtuM&imgurl=http://www.beskeen.com/projects/dslr_serial/SerialDSLRControlCircuit.gif&w=751&h=262&ei=0YZtUdDfFsLLtQblk4GIBg&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=515&vpy=455&dur=162&hovh=132&hovw=380&tx=168&ty=93&page=1&tbnh=90&tbnw=252&start=0&ndsp=47&ved=1t:429,r:23,s:0,i:157 Cu John
  13. Hi Steve & Jim, Sorry in taking too long in replying .. I have a lot of things to do at the moment.. too much work , not enough sleep.. I, am trying to remember where I left of.... Steve sorry that the Pm did not arrive, I was asking what software you have & what you were needing? Jim , Yes I have only one cable going to the camera,,, since my seriel port is occupied, I use the Usb Port , with a serial Adapter.. You will have to make your own cable.. It is quite easy, I can send you the circuit... Let me know how far you are.. Cu John
  14. John Here.. Steve Try this...http://de.software.canon-europe.com/software/0022674.asp?model= I know its in Germay, worth a try.. Cu
  15. Hi steve , John here I have sent you a Pm.. Cu John
