Celestron HC cable extension
Posted 05 May 2013 - 07:22 AM
From the digging I have done so far, it seems that pins 1, 5 and 6 are all ground with 2, 3 and 4 being data.
Can anyone confirm this and also confirm that I will not do damage to my HC by connecting it in this way?

I went looking for a pinout but didn't find one. This site
does talk about the cable.
If that doesn't help then this yahoo site has some knowledgeable people.

Make sure you get the right sort of cable etc

There are a few commercial sources of cables - the best being from Scopestuff.com
It's a black coiled cable that nicely matches the existing hand controller setup.
If you build your own cable be very careful of the pinouts, the electronics are TTL and not RS232 serial so the drivers can't handle being abused (wired incorrectly).
