Bluetooth for skywatcher alt AZ synscan mounts

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

can anyone direct me to a link or web site that I can get a Bluetooth controller that will work between a widows tablet and a synscan Az mount? I did read some time ago that a Brazilian company did such a thing but it appears they are now defunct. Thanks.

I've used one of these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bluetooth-to-RS232-RS-232-Serial-Adapter-Converter-Module-Wireless-Android-PC-/281977148945?hash=item41a725d611:g:2ksAAOSwEK9W~jkw  and the serial cable that came with the handset - once set up it worked fine :grin: 

And actually I need to check it works with my little Merlin AZ mount ready for my trip to Spain tomorrow!!  So any problems I'll report back :hippy2:

Can you possibly share how you connect all these items and what software you use? Will this work with Stellaruim on PC or Skysafari on Android?
