cable remote connected to ST4?
« on: November 02, 2017, 13:49:59 »

Hi,
I just wondering is it possible to build simple cable remote controler (joystick) and connect it to ST4 input? To made final adjustment by hand. If I understand correctly, it is enought to connect one of the 4 ST4 pins to the GND to start to move  in some direction. What is the best place to get GND without opening enclosure?
Cheers,
Damian

See here: https://www.astroeq.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,190.0.html

In summary, this is the schematic:



Simply omit the "speed" connection and it will work with EQMOD connected as an ST-4 guider - nudging the axes.

GND is on pin 2 of the ST-4 port.
