New convenient design with electronics built into plug and no need for separate USB lead.
This new compact and convenient EQDIR adapter allows direct connection of Skywatcher EQ5 PRO, HEQ5 Syntrek/PRO, NEQ6 Syntrek/PRO, AZ EQ6-GT and EQ8 mounts to your laptop.
The EQMOD project consists of a suite of open source applications that bypasses the hand-controller and communicates directly with the mount's stepper motor controller.
2m cable length.
Compatible with Windows XP, 7 & 8.
Windows 8 users, please download this Windows 8 Driver (zip) and read these installation instructions (pdf).

NOTE: The Skywatcher EQ5 PRO, HEQ5 PRO/Syntrek, AZ EQ6-GT and EQ8 mounts all use the same HitecAstro EQDIR adapter so if you upgrade from one to another you will not need an additional EQDIR adapter.
