Vixen SkySensor 2000 PC | SkyBT + SkySafari 5 Pro = Connection Failure (Solution: Check Your R232 Cable)

Hello.

This time I'm trying to connect my SkyBT to my Skysensor 2000PC but I'm constantly getting the message "can do a wireless connection but the telescope is not responding..." Could you please confirm just the need of selecting Skysensor 2000 in Skysafari and conect via SkyBT bluetooth? If that is correct maybe need to try a different serial cable?

Thank you in advance and best regards,

Adi.

    Adi,

    What serial cable are you using?  It is very unlikely a generic serial cable will work.  All manufacturers seem to wire the pins differently.  You may have to check with the manufacturer to see if you need a different cable.

    As Bill Said, a generic cable will not work as Vixen has a crossover of two of the wires. A cable is easy to build following the schematics in the back of the Skysensor 2000 manual
