Connect your Autostar controller to your PC, or share information between two
Autostars. For use with the Meade #497 Autostar controllers, this connector
cable set provides access to three Autostar operations:
- Telescope Control: Use a personal computer (PC) to directly control
a Meade Autostar-compatible telescope through the use of an astronomical software
program with telescope control capabilities such as Meade Epoch 2000sk Sky
- Download from a PC: Download a new version of the Autostar software or object
information (e.g., new satellite orbital parameters) from Autostar Downloads
page through a PC to Autostar.
- Download and Clone from Autostar: Transfer user-defined object information
or new Autostar software from one Autostar Computer Controller to another.
Set consists of:
A 3-foot, 4-pin to 4-pin cable (for connecting two Autostars)
A 6-foot, 4-pin to 6-pin cable
A 6-pin to RS-232 serial interface adapter. If your
computer is only equiped with USB ports, you will need to buy a RS-232/USB
Adapter Mod. ME07507.
NOTE: This cable set works with the #495 and #497 Autostar controllers
