Re: SERIAL PORTS (was: cannot connect gto CP3 to the SKy 6)

The Icron Ranger and Startech 4port USB/serial converter work perfectly if that helps. Just don't buy the Keyspan/Tripplite device. I ran a Pyxis rotator and the Mach1GTO through the Startech to the Icron Ranger and then ran a QSI683wsg, Lodestar guider, and micro touch focuser through the Icron directly.

Not a single issue so far with anything with this combination. Note the range is limited to 150' if I remember correctly.

I'd love to hear more peoples experience using the combination of the Icron Ranger and the Tripplite Keyspan (4 port in my case). I assume Geralds problems are the exception rather than the rule?

I was hoping to use these to remote control the 1600 and cameras/accessories, especially during the cooler months (reached -18C some nights last winter, a bit too chilly for my liking!).

I would be using a Dell XPS / Win7 64 bit laptop.
