Quality


Perfect replacement for the rs232 cable that comes with the ioptron cem60.

Positive Review

Works with my meade lx65 mount and stellarium so i'm happy.

Positive Review

As this cable did not have this configuration, i thought that it might work only with the ieq30 pro mount.

Neutral Review

Shipping


I hope that if a few more of us buy it, maybe they'll put a little more money into the shipping.

Neutral Review

Packaging/appearance


Both worked perfectly straight out of the package and have never caused any problems.

Neutral Review

After everything is configured properly, it'll take about an hour to upgrade the firmware on the lx200.

Neutral Review

Competitiveness

Positive Review

I bought two cables, one for my ioptron zeq25gt mount and one for my meade lx200 classic mount.

Positive Review

If you need one for your ioptron mount this would be the one to get.

    I did have to go over the rj11 end to reinforce the wire-connector joint as this is a weak point which can lead to wire separation.

    So it connects from the pi to the rs232 jack on the autostar handbox.

    No adapter to lose or fall offthe other unit i had was working just fine but was way too long and had that 232->usb adapter also to mess with.

    You usually have to buy the official rs232 cables from meade or ioptron and separately buy a usb-rs232 db9 adapter, all in all costing more than twice as much as these singular straight cables, and it looks messy.

    In order to use this cable to upgrade the firmware on the lx200 gps scope, the scope must be in the software download mode.
