First post for me! Happy to join!
Wish I'm at the good spot to post this question. If not, please guide me!
I just bought a used Bushnell Northstar Goto telescope # 78-8831, 76mm reflector equipped with a hand Goto controller. I know it is not a high grade telescope but Im starting with Goto telescopes. I was wondering if someone ever tried to hook it up with Stellarium or other softwares to control it? I don't know what's the comm protocol but I'm pretty sure it is RS232. I checked on the Bushnell web site and on the web but can't find much information. I'm up to check on the circuit board.
The Bushnell Goto firmware number is V. 0.55, so I presume it is quite old, maybe 2010. The controller has only one connector for the extension cord going to the mount. This scope has a small ''RJ 9" 4 pin connector with a cable going from the hand controller to the main telescope stepper motor controller board. If you know anything about this kind of hand controller, or about a software compatible with it the mount, I"d be glad to hear about it!
Thank's a lot for your help!
