View Full Version here: : Bluetooth controlling an EQ6
05-05-2007, 06:16 PM
Hi all - I'm a newbie. I'm wondering if any can give me advice on using Astromist on a Palm TX through a bluetooth connection to control an EQ6 mount via an AIRcable serial adapter. A basic question - do I plug the AIRcable into the Skyscan handcontroller via a cable or straight into the mount? and if not, what type of cable am I after? I'm also having a little difficulty trying to understand how to configure the AIRcable but its early days at the moment. Anyone been there and done yet?? ta

Are you a member of the yahoo group EQ6? If not, join up there, someone will have an answer, I am sure of it.

I have connected a HP iPAQ Hx4700 running TheSky Pocket Edition to a Vixen GPDX (Skysensor 2000) and a Tak EM200 via Bluetooth using the Socket Cordless Serial Adapter.
I wrote a 5 page PDF "How To" (approx 400K) documenting the steps I took. Although all the components and SW are different to those described in your set up, let me know if you would like a copy and I can e-mail you the PDF.

Thanks Dennis - if you could email the file to email@example.com I can look it over - I'm sure there would be similarities.
thanks for the info, Rob H :thumbsup:
