An alternate design for the power would be as above, do full PWM or play with the adjust voltage on an lmT by imposing a second resistor between adjust and PIC pin RA6 and switching the resistor to ground or letting it float thereby providing two different voltages.

Meade clone: assembled and kit version, full specs, schematic, source

You will need a computer with built-in Bluetooth or a USB Bluetooth dongle if your computer does not have built-in Bluetooth. The last option is the best for most users, but dome users should keade the time to use option 2 and fill out the fields. I have been trying to work with the ascom-talk egroup and contact the current code author to be allowed to distribute a derivative work of the Ascom 5 Meade Classic and Autostar 1 driver but have been un-successful so far. See the FA command below for bit assignments.

This part is optional in most cases and only needed if you need to change the serial Bluetooth adapter’s settings. Source for non-commercial use.

Controlling a Telescope from a PC over Bluetooth Using ASCOM

The park position can be changed using the Autostar II handbox only. If you park your scope after each use, you will never have to hand-slew to a star and sync again.

This is an ongoing project, so be sure autostsr check the site for updates. Equatorial mounts do not need to be accurately polar-aligned although an accurate polar alignment will likely lead to a more satisfying observing experience.

Meade LX GPS and Classic

Autostar II firmware versions uatostar. New version uploaded to fix a bug occurring when attempting to slew mdade a declination below 10 degrees. Your header in Here. One year warranty No return on opened ‘bag of parts’ where assembly started. Now the source code lags behind the schematic, to be posted in the next day or two supporting the new HW.

After a Park command is completed, the software must be disconnected and telescope power must be cycled before normal operation can continue. If interested in a full unit where you. This was done to make the information available across various SMP versions.

Continued use of SGL indicates your acceptance of our cookie policy. Alternatively the Bluetooth adapter’s baud rate can be changed over Bluetooth however this can be a challenge if you are not familiar with this process; using this USB to Autostqr adapter is much easier. Below is a list of parts we use for this setup; some are required, some are highly recommended and some are optional.


Celestron Telescope Driver ProgId programmers only: The 1st option is for purists who need the raw scope behavior. Started with a clone. See sscom if Guider is added.

For those that do not want to go and download compilers and IDE the hex files for burning are now included.

If more than available stock is ordered I will refund money immediately when oversold condition is recognized 24 hours max and provide an expected availability date. Despite what you may read elsewhere, it’s generally best to use guide speeds in this range rather than much lower speeds.

Use the SkyWatcher driver listed below. Thus you aacom leave the scope powered autlstar without wear on the motors or the risk of tracking into the pier, cord wrap, etc. Please contact Explore Scientific for more information. It should also work with TheSky6 and TheSky5 but not all functionality will be present.

Also worth doing a loopback test on the USB to serial, or download Andrew Johansen’s MyScope software, which will test the serial connection all the way to the mount and back and has many other useful features for LXGPS owners:
