Home Accessories Celestron Accessories Celestron USB To RS232 Serial Converter Kit
This adapter allows you to connect your Celestron computerised telescope to your PC through USB for firmware updates or computer control of the telescope, rather than through a slower serial port. This is particularly useful with the laptop computers that most astronomers use to control their telescopes in the field, as laptops rarely have serial sockets.
The USB adapter includes a short cable with a serial connector at one end and a USB connector at the other. The serial end of the USB cable is designed to mate with the serial connector on the Celestron 93920 cable and NexStar, the USB end of the cable plugs into your PC. A CD-ROM is included that contains the necessary software program your computer needs to convert the serial signals to and from the scope to USB format signals that the computer and computer control programs can recognize.Recommended for use with our RS-232 cable (93920) Can be used with other brand telescopes where a serial to USB converter is required.
