I have my iOptron CEM40 connected to my ASIAir Pro via USB, as normal.

In this configuration, I am only able to run SkySafari as it recognises the mount via the ASIAir (as if a WiFi dongle was used).

 

Now I would like to try some other planetarium softwares (Stellarium plus), that possibly could use similar functionality through the ASIAir WiFi. 

This would mean recognising the mount control via IP / Baud...

 

   

 

As anyone used some other cables to go from ASIAir USB2.0 port to direct HBX (RJ11 6P6C), iPort or RJ9 (4P4C cable.) iNova handset port?

If yes, which cable and protocol?

 

Or have you managed to use another planetarium with ASIAir than SkySafari?

 

Thank you,
