Atlas EQDIR USB mod
      #6039322 - 08/21/13 10:59 PM

I'm not very active here and don't post much. I have an Atlas / EQ6 mod that users of EQDIR might be interested in. Others may have done a more sophisticated version of this sort of thing. This one only took an hour.

The mod is a permanent USB pigtail, it allows me to plug a
USB cable directly into my laptop to drive the mount.
Steps can be found on the page linked here.
Thanks for looking.
