The USB to serial just provides a serial port, not an ST-4 guide port like the GPUSB.
A guide camera that does its own guiding has an ST-4 port built in and that is where you attach a cable from the mount to the camera.
The DSI II is a USB camera and it attaches to the laptop, not the mount. You have to have it attached to the laptop and the laptop uses a guide software to interpret the pictures taken with the DSI II and then sends that out by either ST-4 as in the case of the GPUSB or it can use a Pulse Guide if the mount is connected to the laptop and the guide software is capable of doing Pulse Guiding. Then it does not use ST-4 commands to guide.
So is the USB to Serial cable diffrent form the GPUSB cable. Will the serial cable converter work?
