Windows PC connectivity

This is a Windows PC to AudioStar handbox or AutoStar type #497 (full keypad) handbox connector cable only. Allows connection of a Meade AudioStar handbox or Meade AutoStar type #497 to a Windows PC via a serial port using Meade AutoStar Suite software, available for free download at www.Meade.com.

When used with appropriate software it allows for telescope control from the Windows PC, downloading software updates, and cloning the firmware of one handbox to another so you can share user created databases. Software not included.

Comes with a one metre 4-pin to 4-pin cable, a 1.8 metre 4-pin to 6-pin cable, and a 6-pin to RS-232 serial interface adapter.

Note: Computers without a RS-232 (Serial) port require an additional USB to Serial port adapter cable. The Meade USB to RS-232 Serial Adapter Cable (SKU: 07507) is sold separately.

iOS and Android connectivity

To control your telescope from an iOS or Android device the Meade Stella Wi-Fi Adapter (SKU: 608003) is required in conjunction with the Meade #505 Connector Cable Set.

The Meade StellaAccess app for iOS or Android devices is also a requirement. Please refer to the Meade Stella Wi-Fi Adapter product page for details.
