Can't connect to iOptron Mini Tower

Post by emil » Wed May 20, 2020 3:31 am

Has anybody successfully connected Asiair to iOptron Mini Tower using its hand controller serial port? I am trying it with no success.

My hand controller is 8407+ and I am using direct USB to RJ9 serial cable. I haven't yet validated this newly purchased cable though.

I am currently struggling with two factors:

1. The scroll down menu gives me "iOptron Mini Tower & 8401" while my controller is 8407+. Is that significant?

2. Does anybody know what baud rate is required for the iOptron hand controllers?

Hello Emil, can you control your Mini Tower thru the 8047+ HC? Is it an upgrade kit? Please send us more details to asiair@zwoptical.com. Thank you.

Also, there are three models,
MiniTower
MiniTower Pro
MiniTower II
Which one do you use now?
