I currently use 2 of these (mount and rotator) and if I needed 2 more, this is still the one I'd buy. ��Not one single issue the whole time I've used them. ��Best thing is that they keep their COM port assignments even when I move them b/w two different computers.

As for a hub, I use this one and, again, have not had a single issue that I could trace to it. ��5 of the 7 ports are populated with the mount, camera, rotator, flip/flat and focuser. ��I will sometimes use a small USB thermometer as well if I'm curious about the temp.

I had some guiding issues immediately after I bought this hub, which I thought was caused by the hub itself, but it turned out to be totally coincidental. ��Longstory short, the old laptop I was using just needed to be retired. ��Works great on both laptops I currently use.

I can also recommend the Startech hub 100% I have not had a problem what so ever with mine running off battery power or an ac adapter. I can���t vouch for the USB to serial but I would not hesitate to pick up a spare which I probably will do. The COM port retention is a nice feature to have, and will save you time and headaches if a cable inadvertently has a momentary disconnects if by chance a cable snags during a goto or slew or inadvertent disconnect. ��From: MaxImDL@yahoogroups.com [mailto:MaxImDL@yahoogroups.com] On Behalf Of Mark AckerSent: Wednesday, December 18, 2013 2:29 PMTo: MaxImDL@yahoogroups.comSubject: Re: [MaxImDL] Recommended USB-serial converter and hubs

I've been using the AP recommended Keyspan 4 port serial to USB with no issues under windows 7 64bit.

If you are running a desktop PC I think the best way to get a serial port/s is to add a card. I have a 4 port PCI serial card in my PC at the observatory, it works wonderfully..
