FTDI EQDIR USB Adapter for Sky-Watcher AZ-GTi Mounts

Important: EQMOD only works with mounts in equatorial mode, you may need to install the new EQ mode firmware for your AZ-GTi prior to use.

This convenient FTDI EQDIR adapter allows direct connection of a Sky-Watcher AZ-GTi Mount to your laptop. 

The FTDI 232R chipset works reliably across all versions of Windows and, because each cable has a unique chipset ID, each time you unplug the adapter then plug it back into the same computer, even if on a different physical USB port, the COM port number remains the same.

And, we quality control each and every Lynx Astro cable prior to dispatch. 

5m cable length.  

Compatible with Windows XP, 7, 8 & 10, Linux, Mac OSX 10.3 and above.

Windows users, the EQDIR adapter should install automatically but should you require drivers they can be downloaded here.

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.

Simply too easy...

After obtaining the Astto Lynx eq direct cable, then installing eqmod, controlling an AZ-GTi mount couldn't be much easier. The cable is well made and functions as promised.
Shipping from FLO to US westcoast was amazingly fast! My entire selection and purchase experience has been stellar!

Firstly great service from FLO and well packaged. I purchased this cable for my Skywatcher AZ GTI
This has enable to connect - via the handset socket on the mount to my Stellarmate plus device. Running Kstars/Ekos my Mount was discovered and is now up and running smoothly.
Thank you

Works perfectly

The cable was necessary to connect my mount, an Equatorial Firmware Conversion of the SkyWatcher AZ-GTI, to my Raspberry Pi powered astroimaging system running EKOS/KStars software, and it worked perfectly, with a USB connection to the Pi's powered hub and an Ethernet connection to the mount, and, obviously, the pins were set up correctly, because it works. Thanks to FLO for having it in stock (no US shops did) and thanks for getting it out quickly, by Royal post and then USPS. There was a delay clearing customs in the US (in the LA post-office), I suspect due to the pandemic, but, with tracking messages, I knew where it was at all times!

Allways had to fight to get connection with my AZ GTi's weak wifi signal, now with this Lynx Astro USB adapter, the connection works straight away without any hassle. I'm using SynscanPro with APT. Just had to configure SynscanPro to connect using com port.

Works a treat

I bought this to control my AZ GTI mount with an Asiair Pro. The mount is brilliant but I needed a way of controlling it in EQ mode to enable it to be guided as it has no native ST4 port. This works a treat via USB.
