Hi, Everyone could with a little advice on connecting a my Synscan v4 to my laptop. I now how to do it and also know about USB serial adapters, what i am wondering is my laptop has a RJ11 coms port but in the Synscan V4 Manual it says you need a RJ12 port as the cable supplied is RJ12. The RJ12 cable fits into the RJ11 perfectly Is there much difference in these and could i still connect using the method or do i have to go and buy the USB serial adapter? if anyone can shed some light on this it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
I am new to this, so my questions may be strange to some... I have a HEQ-5 Pro mount with SynScan and a Skymax 127 scope and a QHY5L II planet-/guide camera. As winters tend to be really harsch in the north of sweden, I plan to sit inside and run the mount from the PC. This will require quite long USB and power cables, but repeater-equipped USB cables are available, so that should not be a problem. To run the mount from a PC, you have to have an adapter from rs232 (9-pin D-sub) to USB first, which I have, but I wish to skip the original RJ11 to RD232cable. Searching eBay, I found an adapter RJ11 to USB female for less than a US-dollar: "Connector Plugs USB 2.0 Type A Female to Telephone Phone Cable Line Adaptor". A long intro, but has anyone tried this adapter and will it work in this environment?
