Hello 

I have a Meade RCX 400 telescope

And I have a starlight lodestar auto guider CCD camera

If I want to use the auto guider port it is not working

Do you have a schedule of the auto guider port

And is there some thing how I can test the auto guider port

I have use this schedule of the old meade lx 200 but that is not working on my meade rxc 400 telescope

| 1 2 3 4 5 6 |
+----+ +----+
+---+

1 "NC contact" (not used)(an LX200gps has +12v here)
2 - Ground
3 - Right (CW)
4 - Down
5 - Up
6 - Left (CCW)

bye
Nico

Nice.
I do not have any expierence on the RCX models so im shooting in the dark on this.
The auto guider cable my be the wrong one .
Also check the documentation for the proper cable. should be a RJ 12
See if there is an option in the settings to turn off or turn on the auto guider port.

Im glad this issue is resolved.
The port should be in an always on position.
The firmware may have gotten corrupted some where along the line.
