This USB cable for the Skywatcher HEQ5 and AZ-EQ6 will allow you to turn your existing mount into a fully computer controlled GOTO mount.

Used in conjunction with the EQMOD suite of open source software applications, the cable does away with the standard telescope hand controller and allows the pc to communicate directly with the telescope mount. Simply connect the cable between your PC and mount, then fully control your mount from any planetarium software that has telescope control functionality.

This cable uses the advanced FTDI - USB to RS232 chip.  If you change to a different USB port on your PC, the serial port number (Comm port) stays the same! A feature that cheaper cables do not have.


  • Simple installation process
  • Compatible with HEQ5/AZ-EQ6 mounts
  • LED communication status on USB connector
  • 1.8m cable length
  • Compatible with Windows XP, 7, 8, 10
