My SkyView Pro mount does not have a serial RS-2332 port. Is there anyway for my to use the PHD software for guiding?

Looks like you would need the GOTO upgrade kit. For the cost of that, you could get a new mount.

Yes, you'll need two things to do so:

and their Guide Port Conversion Kit for EQ-style mounts.
