Lynx Astro

New FTDI EQDIR USB Adapter for Sky-Watcher EQ6 or NEQ6 Syntrek or PRO Mounts.

Also suitable for use with the Orion Atlas EQ-G mount. 

This convenient FTDI EQDIR adapter allows direct connection of Sky-watcher EQ6 or NEQ6 Syntrek/PRO 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 higher quality plugs. I.e. the DSUB plug has thumbscrews, so is easy to secure, and the point where the cable fits the plugs is nice and tight to prevent moisture entering the plug. 

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.

A quality product that worked first time - when I had been given the instructions on which driver to load. FLO are not lone in being a little short at times on supplying instructions - but when asked they do come up trumps.

Got the cable last week and everything worked perfectly. Now I control my computer with the Ascom drivers. Didn't expect it to be that simple.

Delivery was very quick. Installation as quick - one end into my EQ6's serial port, the other into a USB port on my laptop, a few minutes whilst Windows downloads and installs the driver and away we go. Perfect
