Losmandy G11 and ZWO ASI174

Post by Zuukz » Tue Mar 27, 2018 1:51 pm

Greetings all,

I've got an older G11 Non Gemini mount and just got a ZWO ASI174 camera. I am a bit overwhelmed at what I need to do to interface this with the mount. If I remember right there were times when an optocoupler needed to be used. Or can I just use a splitter, run the hand controller on one side and use the ZWO ST4 guide port on the other. I will be using FireCapture software as it came with the camera.
Thanks for the help and clear skies,
ZuukZ

I am not familiar enough with the G11 to know if just a splitter will work. Our GPUSB product will work for sure.

I was hoping to plug the ZWO and Losmandy hand controller in but I see no out to go to the mount.

Thanks for being kind, I'm more of a visual guy.

Regards,
