The USB-to-Serial adapter provides a virtual serial (COM) port for laptops without serial ports. This allows you to use astronomy software programs such as Starry Night, NexRemote, EQMOD, and more to control your computerized GoTo telescope mount.
Using this adapter also allows you to use hand-controller and motor-drive firmware update software on a laptop or PC that does not feature a serial port.
For autoguiding, you can use the USB-to-Serial Adapter in conjunction with software such as PHD Guiding to provide pulse guiding controls on GoTo telescope mounts and/or astrophotography cameras that do not feature a built-in ST-4 port.
Windows XP, Vista (32/64), 7, 8, 10 and Mac OS X compatible.
