FTDI EQDIR USB Adapter for Sky-Watcher EQ5 PRO, HEQ5 Syntrek & PRO, AZ EQ5-GT, EQ6-R PRO, AZ EQ6-GT and EQ8 Mounts.

This convenient FTDI EQDIR adapter allows direct connection of Sky-Watcher EQ5 PRO, HEQ5 Syntrek & PRO, AZ EQ5-GT, AZ EQ6-GT and EQ8 Mounts 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. 

1.8m 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.

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

There are currently no specifications available for this product.
