I've been reading about controlling my mount with Stellarium. Looks pretty simple. Supposed to attach laptop to hand controller via serial port to RS232.
Laptop is the easy part with the serial connection.
The hand controller must be a newer model because it doesn't have the RS232. It has a USB port. So, I looked up the specs and found the right cable and hooked it up to my laptop.
Enter Stellarium.... In the section to connect to a telescope, my options are:
- Stellarium, directly through a serial port
- External software or a remote computer
- Nothing, just emulate one (a moving reticle)
I see nothing about connecting by USB under "Device Settings". It's only Serial.
Anyone come across this? Any suggestions?
