Am *very new* to AP, guiding, and my new Losmandy GM811G mount, and am jumping in.

 

I'm setting up a new ASIAIR pro, an ASI290mm-mini guide camera and my mount. Have been reading and listening and searching here and the Losmandy forums.  Such a learning curve!!!  

 

A question:  In running the two cords from the guide camera, the usb cord goes to the ASIAIR pro usb 2.0 port, but what about the ST4 cord?  Does it go to the "Auto Guider" port on my Gemini 2 mount?

 

Thanks for any help!!

Edit: Brian from Losmandy says the ST4 cord is not used on the Losmandy mounts" "you do not use the ST4 or the autoguider port in the setup you mention. The USB goes to the AAP and the Gemini should also plug into the AAP

 

FYI ST4+autoguider port is older technology and no longer used, but is kept for compatibility purposes"
