Once you start using EQMOD and the HitecAstro EQDIR cable, you will never go back. 

The HitecAstro EQDIR cable doesn’t need additional leads or adaptors – it consists of a suite of open source applications that bypasses the hand-controller and communicates directly with the mount’s stepper motor controller.  You can plug it into any USB port without a COM-port change and it allows a direct connection to the Skywatcher EQ6 or NEQ6 Syntrek or Pro Mounts from your PC.

It bypasses the hand-controller and communicates directly with the mount’s stepper motor controller, and enables direct control from your PC.  Your PC will now manage positioning, time, slewing etc..   ASCOM compliant planetarium applications (such as carte de soleil, Starry Night, TheSky, Stellarium) can interface with EQMOD and operate your telescope through the EQDIR cable without the need of a handset, allowing your scope to be remotely controlled.

This version features a 9 pin serial RS232 port instead of a RJ45 connector.  This is suitable for the Skywatcher EQ6, NEQ6 Syntrek, and NEQ6 Pro mounts.

HitecAstro EQDIR cables are made with uncompromising quality in Britain and are well supported by HiTecAstro.

To use the cable, you need to install the latest version of ASCOM platform and then the EQMOD project followed by the driver.

The price includes shipping (Australia Only).
