Greetings all!
I have an Orion Atlas EQ-G circa 2008 and wonder about using a Bluestar bluetooth adapter to allow remote control of the telescope.... not looking for alternative solutions. I already have the Bluestar.
What I am looking for is information as to what cable is needed (waiting for Starry Night support to get back to me on that one), and where I hook up to...?
Do I hook up to the Synscan controller, or to the guide port on the mount itself?
If anyone has any experience with this device on this mount it would be greatly appreciated.

Here's a related thread that may have some information you can use, although it's Bluetooth centric.

Thanks Jim! The link is filled with good information.
However, what I need is StarryNights Bluestar product information in relation to my mount. There seems to be little to no information about this. :crazy:
Thanks for your efforts!

On Bluetooth connection there was something on Beevos web I believe.
Don't know if it applies to your adapter :shrug:
