Anyone know of any step-by-step tutorials to controlling this mount with a laptop and how to do it? Im stuck inside because of the rain otherwise I would go experiment with it.

Thanks

Hi, for the first step you must buy this adapters:
1) http://www.telescopes.com/telescope-accessories/maps-books-software/meade505c...

and 1) http://www.ftdichip.com/Products/Cables/USBRS232.htm

At this point you have all the hardware necessary to connect your LXD75 to your computer.
Now, you just have to decide which software planetarium you want use.
