Shoestring USB2 EQ6 Interface

Recent generations of Synta EQ-5 and EQ-6 mounts that use the SynScan handcontroller (such as the Skywatcher EQ6 Pro and NEQ6 and Skywatcher HEQ5 Pro) provide stable, quality GOTO mounts at affordable prices for observing and imaging.

However, the features available when they are interfaced to a personal computer are somewhat limited, primarily due to the type of data that is available through the handcontroller’s serial interface.

Now, thanks to the efforts of several individuals, far more powerful features are made available by bypassing the handcontroller and communicating directly with the mount’s stepper motor controller.

More information on the EQ Direct method can be found in the Yahoo EQMOD Group ( or on the EQ Mod website (

PLEASE NOTE: This cable will work with NEQ6 mounts with Serial connection Only.

If you have EQ6R or AZ/EQ6 you will require the  USB2EQ5 cable
