Question about the EQDIR

Post by ravens » Mon Oct 16, 2017 9:11 am

I've got a Orion Skyview Pro with Synscan Upgrade Kit. Do I need the EQDIR Interface Module and the EQCBL-01 cable?
Thanks.

The best option is the USB2EQ5 cable that we sell. The only reason you would want a EQDIR/EQCBL-01 combination is if you want to run a cable further than 15 feet.

Thanks. My computer is set up close to the telescope so the USB2EQ5 cable sounds good.
