Kson - Mounts featuring USB-ports new
      #4400953 - 02/21/11 06:29 AM

Hi all

Has anybody accomplished to connect a netbook via USB to this "Kson Eksplorer" mount: http://www.ksonoptics.com:8081/Product/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

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.
