Customer Reviews

  Worked as Advertised  I'd been trying to update using an older lead and Windows 10 with no luck. Purchased this lead having read a few reviews and it worked straight out of the box no fuss no bother! Quick delivery too so a happy Astronomer!!  (27/09/2019) Andy - Norwich


  upgrade failed mid download with inferior cable   This cable worked first time without any extra drivers uploading the new download. My previous cable controlled the scope without any issues but completed a total removal of the flash memory and only10% of the upgrade leaving handcontroller totally useless until next day delivery which was great.   (25/03/2019) Jeff sharpe - Mow Cop Cheshire


  Prompt and efficient  Good service - item arrived quickly, well packed and was exactly as described - it also worked! I gather not all USB to RS232 adaptors are the same.   (15/02/2019) Tony White - Newmarket UK


  Excellent  what a excellent cable worked first time and the service was out of this world ordered one day got it the next day   (21/12/2018) Patrick Edwards - Long Rock West Cornwall


  Worked straight out the box  Another brand lead wouldnt work. Connected this and boom worked straight away.   (03/08/2018) Steve rees - Caerphilly


  SkyWatcher SynScan USB to Serial Converter Cable  Necessary to plug into the Skywatcher Serial Lead, supplied with their scope, to update handset firmware. Also found it works to control an AZ GOTO scope from a computer running the free Stellarium software. Probably cheaper leads on the market, but this is made by / for SkyWatcher, and it works.   (23/01/2018) Rob H. - Torbay


  Great delivery, great item.   I was having trouble updating the firmware on my Synscan mount and never thought it could be the cable. As soon as I got this it has worked perfectly. Came super quick too! Thanks very much.   (12/01/2018) Dan Heath - Preston


  Does it's job well  Bought this after having problems updating my Synscan GOTO handset using a generic cable. I understand the problem may be the absence of FTDI chip in cheaper cables. Suffice it to say that this cable worked perfectly.   (29/09/2017) David - Kent
