Please forgive me if this seems a stupid question, but I have been struggling with this for a few hours. I’m trying to connect my Skywatcher Synscan AZ GOTO telescope mount which is running the latest firmware to my MacBook Air using your serial to USB adapter configured with up-to-date drivers, and which shows up in preferences/network as USBserial controller D. I have set it to be a null modem with a baud rate of 9600. If I press “connect” I get an error message saying “A connection could not be established to the PPP server. Try reconnecting.”
Starry night software has been configured to run this particular telescope, but when I press “connect” the connection is made for a few moments before disconnecting and throwing up an error message. I don’t think the problem is with the telescope mount, the handset, or starrynight, but rather with the way in which the USB to serial adapter is configured on the MacBook air.
Does anybody have experience with this particular problem or does anybody have any idea where I may be going wrong? Many thanks in advance.
