I tried searching for this topic but did not find anything.
I downloaded Autostar Suite 5.5 and trying to connect to an LX200GPS 8" scope. The com port it connects to on my laptop is 7. I have checked the baud rate (9600,1 and no parity). When I try to connect I get an error "Communications Not Established! Opening Comm. Port without a protocol". I have tried both RS232 ports on the scope - no difference.
Anyone seen this or have any thoughts? Same error on 2 different laptops. I am pretty sure the cable is good as it does connect with PHD2.
