Hi--- Does any one know what telescope and settings I should choose in

The Sky Pocket Edition to operate a HGM200 with Gemini L3 ? I dont see

Gemini in the choices.



Thanks,

Dan

Dan,



As the Gemini uses the LX200 protocall, I would try using LX200 as default setting. Let us know how this works out. I too have an HGM200 with Astrometric system installed, but will be switching to Gemini 3 later this week. Have an Ipaq with The Sky Pocket Edition installed and proper cabling ready as well.

Good luck.

I hope I have the proper cabling. The 9 pin to phone jack converter I

have says BBOX on it--It works for my GPS and Gemini, so I'm hoping it

will work for my IPAQ as well. I wont be able to test it until next

week, because we're supposed to get several feet of snow this

week...hey...at least its during the full moon for a change :).

Hi---

I was able to use my IPAQ with Pocket Sky to totally control my

Gemini L3 HGM200. The LX200 setting is what I used. I had to build a

cable (like the one in the Gemini manual) and use a gender changer and

a null modem for some reason.

Dan,



Do you continue to use your Ipaq with the HGM200? I'm about to switch over from a Skywalker Servo system and, while I've been using Geminis for a couple of years now on other mounts, never got around to trying my Ipaq as the controller. The HGM200 is a handful and I'd prefer to make this transition painless, but also want to employ as many features as are practical using the equipment that I currently have and without the laptop. (Note that the Gemini is L3). Is this configuration really a novelty, or does it truly improve the experience (ccd vs visual if necessary).

Many thanks!
