Excellent! I wonder what other mounts this could work for! One less cable would be great. I currently do not use a laptop/PC to control my mount just the HC. I do a mix of visual and photographic and naturally when shooting the collection of cables is a times troublesome.

I have been researching bluetooth adaptors and came across Fred's excellent article.

It seems quite common with other adaptors that you need a null modem connection, which may explain why it was necessary to swap the Tx/Rx lines.

Anyway, I'm off to eBay to buy one of these units for my LX200.

Ian.
