Use our telescope serial cables (rs232) to get the most out of your GoTo telescope. Start controlling it from your computer. What is the big deal? We used to think that finding objects was half the fun. Well, guess what? After we started to use our telescope and computer together, we realized that it is a different experience. If you want to crawl around in the dirt, sighting along the telescope, running back and forth to your paper star charts, so you can star hop to the object you are looking for, you can still do it! If you want to wrestle with the inane menu system of your hand controller, or memorize codes to find objects, you can still do it!

Using your computer with a GoTo system does not preclude you from the "fun" of hunting for objects. You will learn that the computer really expands what you can locate with the telescope. In fact, you will discover objects that you would never have thought to look for with paper star charts or your electronic hand controller. The computer software has a much larger database than paper charts, and the software is much more flexible. For example, you can display just certain types of objects, or objects of some magnitude range. When you are looking at the computer screen, you will see objects that are not shown on the paper charts that are within the light grasp of your telescope.
