If you are accepting comments on USB-serial adapters, I have found that the one that came with my RoboFocus from Home Domes to work the best of several that I tried, so I order 3 more. Not sure of the brand at the moment but I am sure he would tell you. Using all the same brand sure helps.

Hi All,

It should be pointed out that a broken or incompatible serial cable
was the root cause of the problem. The AP mount was in no way at fault.

To prevent bad user experience like this in the future AP might
consider to add a simple serial cable that is known to work to the
mount package when shipped (cost should not be an issue) (maybe even
include a USB adapter)

OR

Have known good serial cables / USB adapters available for purchase at
AP for users who don't know their ways around debugging or knowing
about the peculiarities of serial communications cables and computer
interfaces.

AND

When any 'bug report' on communication issues comes in ask the user to
replace the serial cable with a known good one. (see above how to get it).

Clear Skies,

Gert
