Hi, I bought a meade ldx 75 8" sct over a year ago,and I haven't been able to get it to connect to my computer, I have a compaq presario V6000 laptop,if that helps, it has a cord that connects to the mount on one end and a rs232,or serial, connector on the other,but mylaptop doesn't have one, so I bought a rs232/serial to usb adapter,downloaded the software to have the computer recognize the usb port as a rs232/serial port. The software hasn't worked yet, but I did, finally,get it to recognize my dspro camera. Could use all the help that I could get to fix my connection problem. Thanks
