Re: problem connecting ST-7 to AP1200 GTO

Hi John,

I use an ST-8E which is basically the same camera (but with a
different CCD chip) with my 1200 GTO with no problems. The
TIC cable by the way is a simple straight through 6-wire
cable you can get from Radio Shack or any other electronic
store. I would try getting another cable to see if that
is the problem. When you do start to guide with the 1200
make sure you set the button move speed down to 0.25x or
0.5x, otherwise the mount will move too fast when guiding.

Has anyone ever experienced problems connecting the SBIG ST-7
to the AP 1200
When I connect the St-7 TIC-cable to the mount it starts to
move westward.
I checked cable connections/pinouts but I cannot get it
right. My ST-7 is
about 4-5 years old.
