This convenient FTDI EQDIR adapter allows direct connection of a Sky-Watcher AZ-GTi Mount to your laptop.
Compatible with Windows XP, 7, 8 & 10, Linux, Mac OSX 10.3 and above.
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.

super fast delivery received within 24 hours. Bought this cable to connect my AZ GTI (EQ MOde) to ASI AIR PRO plugged in recognised my mount immediately this is absolutely the quickest and easiest method. Although connecting in WIFI mode is possible i found the AZGTI WIFI was very flakey and prone to dropping out and can only be used in 2.4 instead of the faster 5ghz which the cable allows worth every penny to save a lot of headaches

This is the perfect cable to link the AZ GTI Skywatcher mount to EQMOD. EQMOD recognises the mount straight away once you have configured the software as per their instructions.
Perfect for the ZWO ASI Air Pro

I've had some odd problems using my AZ GTi for AP in EQ Mode with the ZWO ASI AIR Pro not being able to ensure it was in any way linked to WIFI connectivity this cable has resolved all those issues with GoTo not completing full movements and then failing intermittently after plate solving this cable has completely resolved it - Yes it's not cheap but trust me when you are stood out under clear skies and unable to capture images you would happily pay £200 for it just to work! (Trust me this has happened to me on multiple occasions under our un-reliable UK skies! So when clear skies come around you don't want to lose out!)
I also got a cheap cable off a friend from AliExpress it didn't work so don't bother just buy this and get snapping!

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.

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.

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.

Fast and great service as always from flo.
This does exactly what is says on the tin and works flawlessly with eq mod, poth, virtual synscan on pc etc...
Fantastic for pc control of the mount and for mount firmware updates
