Does Astroberry support EQDIR cable with direct connection to NEQ6 Pro mount? #33425
Hi,

I am planning to use Astroberry and have a few questions.:)
I want to control my mount using an EQDIR cable or an EQDIR Bluetooth adapter. Both are bypassing the hand control of the mount which is a Skywatcher NEQ6 Pro.
I am currently using either an EQDIR cable or an EQDIR Bluetooth connection and EQMOD on a Windows 10 notebook to perform this.
It is more important that the EQDIR cable works as Astroberry will be attached to mount anyway. The control is planned with an Android tablet.

I am also using a Bluetooth Gamepad to control the mount moves manually (i.e. for star alignment). Will this work as well?

Hi,
Yes they will both work just fine, as the Ekos / INdI software supports this :)
