I was looking to buy the 505 cable set for connecting my EXT 125 PE to my PC and notice that you can get it alone or with the Epoch 2000sk Software. I have the AutoStar Suite that came with my scope. Is one softeware better then the other for operating the scope from the PC? What's the difference in the two? Thanks for any help??


PS. Upon searching for the cable some more on the internet, Now I see the cable comes with another meade software called Astrofinder. I'm wondering if these are just some older versions of AutoStar Suite?

Both are about the same
If I were to choose one for controling the scope and as star charts id look at carts du ceil
It has more info and is more functional
Just my opinion
