Re: Connecting Celestron CG5 Advanced GT

I have that cable but hadn’t tried it.

I just tested without success...however, it is daylight now. I’ll try tonight after an alignment and see if that makes any difference.


Thanks for the suggestion,
Jeff

Re: Connecting Celestron CG5 Advanced GT

The cameras are recognized by the asiair...but the cg5 gets the error message “connection failed”.

I’ve tried all Celestron type mounts in the asiair selection/options. All come back with the same error message.

My CPC connects without issue.

Re: Connecting Celestron CG5 Advanced GT

No luck with the FTDI cable.

Any other ideas?

Anyone else with a CG5 with a non-usb hand controller get theirs to work?


Thanks,
Jeff

Re: Connecting Celestron CG5 Advanced GT

I found one on Amazon that stated it is FTDI and works with Linux.

I’ll find out in a couple of days if that solves it.


Thanks for the suggestion.

Re: Connecting Celestron CG5 Advanced GT

I have the older one with the modular jack (serial connection). I hope the only solution is to buy a hand controller with a USB port. These controllers aren’t cheap.

Re: Connecting Celestron CG5 Advanced GT

Bump? I’d really like to use the Asiair with the CG5.

Re: Connecting Celestron CG5 Advanced GT

I did a three star alignment. But the Asiair doesn’t “see” the mount...only the cameras.

Connecting Celestron CG5 Advanced GT

I was able to connect my Celestron CPC to the Asiair...however, I’m having difficulties connecting my CG5 Advanced GT. I’m guessing it is because there is no USB on the hand controller (it has the serial connector...I’m using the adapter to turn it into a USB). Anybody else able to connect the CG5 v...

Re: SkySafari not working

Solved!

I found a USB hand controller and hooked it up (instead of the serial hand controller) and it works now.
