Meade AutoStar Suite

I have been testing the Meade AutoStar Suite with my new LXD75 sn-10 telescope. Things are working very well. The network topology is thus:

* Attach the included 9-pin serial adapter to a serial port on the PC.

* Run the cable from that and plug it into the Autostar hand controller.

* The hand controller is plugged into the Telescope control panel.

After the telescope is aligned with North and calibrated, just click on a location within the map on the screen and select “slew telescope”, and the telescope automatically moves and brings the object into view. I am testing this out a little more before first light.

  1. This stands out as the first time I’ve commented below and I must say you give genuine, and good quality information for bloggers! Fantastic position.

  2. I wish more people would write blogs like this that are actually helpful to read. With all the crap floating around on the net, it is a great change of pace to read a blog like yours instead.
