Hi all

Has anybody accomplished to connect a netbook via USB to this "Kson Eksplorer" mount: http://www.ksonoptic...ct/PrdDtls/158/
It uses USB to connect the handcontroller - so it could be quite simple to connect a notebook/netbook instead.

A 5" refractor on an eq mount with a payload of 17lbs. is nearly 7k. I'll pass :p

Their 'max payload' seems to be a little tooooo optimistic - as usual. But noone has to abuse it this way ;)
I'm simply interested in these Not-GP-Clones 'cause it is sth I've never seen before and because usb could make a lot of things way simpler.
