Cable from RJ-11 to USB on computer

Post by StarManFlorida » Fri Mar 11, 2016 10:42 pm

Before I jump and order anything this time, I need to know if Shoestring Astronomy makes the cable that connects the RJ-11 (4-pin port) to the computer's USB port ? The hand controller is the Orion Synscan. I believe that this type of connection is called the PC-Direct method. For specific details, see the EQMOD website under: "Planetarium Control Options for Synta EQ Mounts."

We do not make a cable that plugs into the handcontroller for the PC-Direct method. Our cables are made to plug into the mount where the handcontroller normally does.
