The hand control serial port based only is then connected to the telescope mount. If the enhanced is not found, it will use pulseguide to the via the Scope serial port. The software is really designed for traditional astronomical cameras using longer exposure lengths i. While not complete functionality e. Please bear in mind:

If your serial Bluetooth adapter’s serial number is or higher then the default baud rate is bps which is also the default baud rate for most telescope mounts and you can continue autostra paring the adapter with your computer as described below.
Use this driver with mounts that purport to use the LX protocol. This is used for setting baseline guiding parameters, doing sanity-checks on calibrations, and reporting guiding performance. If your serial Bluetooth adapter’s serial number is or lower the default baud rate is bps and you will need to first change.
If you have a Meade, a Meade cable; if you have a Celestron, a Celestron cable. Below is an illustration of the connections from the hand control cable to the Bluetooth adapter. Posted July 23, Sign in with Twitter.
History of this autostaar. Most often, all you have to do is select your telescope model from a telescope set up window, enter the proper com port number, and leave the defaults as they are.
It has been reported that this driver also works with the RCX except it doesn’t allow access to its unique features. It should also work with TheSky6 and TheSky5 but not all functionality will be present.

Port A of the PIC is fully accessible for writes from the out of band serial. It contains both a Telescope driver as well as a Focuser driver since the scope and focuser controls share the same serial port.
How do you fix that?
Use care in connecting to xscom Aux Bus pins. One that would allow a single telescope or focuser, or CCD camera, or dome control driver to be used by any astronomy program. This circuit did not have any problem with that.

Alternatively the Bluetooth adapter’s baud rate can be changed over Bluetooth however this can be a challenge if you are not familiar with this process; using this USB to RS adapter is much easier. Or you may not like it.
The last option is the best for most users, but dome users should take the time to use option 2 and fill out the fields. This used to be dicey, involving Bluetooth transmitters and receivers that were hard to get going and hard to keep going.
The sends 8 bytes and does not seem to keep gating out clock after the autostr byte so the can ack it. You are xscom ready to connect your computer to the hand control via the serial Bluetooth adapter.

All programs can autostaar a particular driver to print, scan, or whatever they want to do. Stepper is under full control of the keypad, acts just like the. Until fairly recently it was unusual to have a scope maker release a driver.
