Re: Which GTOCP* connection do you use?


Geof Lewis
 

The serial connection of my AP1200 GTO CP3 is connected to my laptop via an FTDI serial to USB adapter. The USB end is connected to a powered 7 port USB2 hub, which also services the guide and imaging cameras plus a powered Hitec Mount Hub Pro, which in turn runs my Moonlite focuser and 3 dew straps. There is single USB2 cable between the observatory laptop and USB2 hub.
Regards,

Geof

A new poll has been created:

I am toying with connecting via ethernet to save a USB space on my control computer.  I have also ordered an FTDI serial adapter to try that out.  Therefore I should only need 1 USB cable to my entire imaging rig.  What are your connections and why?

1. USB
2. Ethernet
3. WiFi
4. RS-232
