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 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.
We have also taken this opportunity to specify a higher quality RJ45 plug with a rubber cowl that prevents snagging and an integral 'boot' (a reinforcing sleeve) for extra strength.
And, we quality control each and every Lynx Astro cable at our premises 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.
