USB Interface to Control a GOTO Mount and a Canon EOS Digital SLR

Compatible with

- Merlin, Autotrack, SupaTrak, Skyliner Flextube Synscan GOTO and possibly more...

This interface/cable is compatible with the Ursa Minor Pro Planetarium and Telescope Controlling Software

Description:
With this interface you can control your GOTO Telescope Mount without the hand controller directly from your laptop or PC.

This interface cable can be connected to a Canon EOS 300D, 350D, 400D, 450D or 500D digital cameras. By this way, the Ursa Minor Pro software can control the exposure time of the camera in mode “B” (bulk).

The Ursa Minor Pro software has larger database than the hand controller and it provides more accurate positioning to the planets, minor planets and comets than the original hand controller.

The Ursa Minor Pro software can also co-operate with an autoguider software. It can monitor the signals of the autoguider software and mix these commands to goto and manual movement commands. The result is: by using one cable only it provides GoTo and autoguiding. As a result the autoguider port of the mount remains empty; no need for many cables hanging around.

This interface cable needs a driver to operate. You can download it from the Downloads page. Please download the FTDI_automatic_driver.zip file, unpack it and start the CDM 2.04.06.exe file.

It comes with all the cables you can see on the picture included.

You can order the necessary software from here:
