Connecting Celestron CG5 Advanced GT

Post by Bonorden » Wed Apr 10, 2019 9:26 pm

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 via a serial hand controller?


Thanks,
Jeff

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

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