I have an Orion Sirius that is running SynScan v2.05 (older version made in 2006). I want SkySafari 6 Pro on iOS to be able to control it. I purchased this: http://www.skysafariastronomy.com/products/skywire/index.html cable and have not been able to successfully connect.
My connection is
iPhone -> skywire lighting cable to RS232 -> RS232 cable to SkyScan v2.05 handset -> cable from handset to Orion Sirius mount
On the handset I activated RS232 mode in the settings and on my iPhone SkySafari I selected Orion Sirius as the telescope type and am not able to make a connection.
What did I do wrong?
Also, can I use EQMOD to make a viable connection from SkySafari to the Orion Sirius mount? If so, which EQMOD cable would I need? I don't see EQMOD as an option in the telescope types on SkySafari's settings so does SkySafari support EQMOD?
