just wondering what options are available for me to upgrade the standard SXW Vixen clamp to enable it to accept Losmandy style dovetails. I recently acquired a CGE dovetail that I would like to use with my 8” Edge.

At last, I have 3D printed an adapter to attach an angled viewfinter to the polar telescope finder. This is for the Star Adventurer polar telescope, but I think it fit even others.
My document of how I did it:
It works so perfect compare to my film canister build adapter. This is my first real 3D printed product I will use so I have great times.
I own a NEQ6 mount and EQDirect cable, but the RJ45 version. The NEQ6 uses a DB9 port, so I got an adapter but I need to wire it myself. See attached picture of my adapter + EQDirect. I am quite unsure how to wire my adapter. The first diagram here should tell me how, but I'm still not sure I get it. If I look at the EQDirect adapter (see attached close-up), it looks like on pin 1 & 2, when the diagram says there should be ground there. Also someone in an INDI forum told me I could ignore the 12v pin as it would be supplied by the mount, but the RJ45 actually seems to have something on those pins.
It's tempting to just look at the wiring of both adapters and trust the colors, but I'm afraid making mistakes here might damage the mount...
EDIT: I own this RJ45 to DB9 adapter. Would any of the proposed wirings in this document work for my need?
