Hi Doug. I bought a bt2eq6 for my az-eq6. Apparently I should have bought the bt2eq5 due to having an RJ45 connector on the az-eq6? Rather than post the bt devices back and forth btn AUS and US can I use an rj45 to db9 converter? I'm concerned that they might be wired differently (the different skywatcher ports). Or should i just post the bt2eq6 back?
You could make a cable that converted from the DB9 to RJ45. I believe the pinouts are on the EQMOD website. If you would rather swap, please email your shipping address to email@example.com and I will get the BT2EQ5 in the mail to you at my next opportunity knowing you will ship the BT2EQ6 back.
