I have been having problems with being able to move the scope with the Autostar Controller.  I have connected the 35-4700-02 controller that came with the scope and the scope responds without any problem. Is the 497 controller going bad?  Will an upgrade correct the problem? 

 

I have a couple of serial port to RJ11 connects and not sure which is the correct one.  Or can I buy a new cable that will convert the RJ11 to USB port.  Any suggestions are appreciated..
