While the USB2EQ5 interface cable would work with this telescope since it uses the Synscan handcontroller, the problem is that it is an Alt-Az mount. The EQMOD ASCOM driver does not currently support Alt-Az mounts, only equatorial mounts.
Agreed but it seem like that would still be cheaper than the usual EQ mount and such. One thing I really like about the dobsonian is it is compact. No weights sticking out and such. It seems like a much more elegant setup... granted getting great photos is a challenge because of the lack of worm gears and all that, but still.
Anyway... I will continue dreaming.
