CdC - Skywatcher EQ3 Mount through GuideCam?

Postby AstroChris » Thu Mar 07, 2019 7:44 pm

Hi folks,

I'm about to buy me my first autoguider cam. Something like the "ToupTek GP-1200-KMB Mono" or similar.
My question:
Till today i control the Mount via USB-> serial cable to the syncscan handcontroller using CdC or Stuff...
Now the new guidecam will have USB directly to the laptop and then a second cable to the Mount for the auto guiding control.
-> can i "goto"-controll my mount "through" the guidecam (for CdC/Stellarium) or do i need the second cable to the handcontroller?

Thx!
Chris
