: We are currently using the Magellan II system from Meade and are interested in having dialogue with other users. Please e-mail if you have one and are interested !

: I just installed the Magellan II on my LX50, but have only had a chance to use it once in the field. The digital RA and Dec readouts match the setting circles perfectly, although I had to mesh the Dec sensor quite snug in order to remove play in the sensor mechanism. I have been trying to communicate with Skychart III with a home-made cable, but have been unable to establish communication. Cable continuity and COM port settings seem to be OK, and the serial option on the Magellan has been turned on. Any suggestions?
