BT2EQ5 with EQ8

Hi All,
someone was asking if there was an BT2 version for the EQ8 on the SGL forum. I am not sure there is, but do any of you know if the V4 Hand controller RJ connections for the EQ8 are the same as the V3? If so, would not the BT2EQ5 work with the EQ8?

Clear skies,

If the port where the handcontroller plugs into the EQ8 mount is an 8-pin modular connector, then the BT2EQ5 is what you need.

Do you know anyone that has used the BT2EQ5 with Sequence Generator Pro to control the mount ?? Trying to get rid of one very long USB cable.
I am using the Atlas Pro mount. Wondering if there are any problems using SGP with the BT product. Thanks.

I am not aware of anyone, but I often do not hear the details of a customer's setup. You might try a post on the EQMOD Yahoo group:
