Hi just been trying to connect up a Celestron SLT GoTo to my MacBook Air. I wanted to control the scope from Stellarium. the problem is I cannot find the address of the port I am using. I tried using terminal, putting cd/devs in to give me the address but it said this command is not valid.

So I have achieved nothing so far I just keep getting told that no telescope is attatched, and I am about to give up on it. Any help will be gratefully accepted.

Hi. Sorry to hear you are struggling. I don't speak "Mac" but found this which might give you some leads:

The above reference came from here:

Hope this might help a bit

Hi Brian,
Thank you for your help, Have looked at both links. The first I tried and it did not work, the second one though provided much more information including a different set of commands to find the communication port on the Mac. Will let you know what happens.

Jeff
