This product has been now upgraded with a new chipset that allows to plug it into any USB port without COM-port change. Unfortunately this new chipset is more expensive, so we had to slightly raise the price.

This new compact and convenient EQDIR adapter allows direct connection of Skywatcher HEQ5 mounts (Syntrek and PRO models) to your laptop or PC via a standard USB lead by replacing the original handset.

The EQMOD project consists of a suite of open source applications that bypasses the hand-controller and communicates directly with the mount's stepper motor controller, thus enabling direct control from your PC.  In order to use this product you must first download and install the latest version of ASCOM platform and then the EQMOD project which is freely available here.

The driver for this product is available here.
