I have a small question, which I am unable to solve, somehow.
So, first of all, I'm driving an EQ6-R with EQMOD2 and PC-Direct mode. The EQ6-R has a SNAP port which can easily control the D5100 (successfully tested with the hand controller). It is connected through a COM port to my computer. According to SynScan specifications, one pin on that COM port is for shutter capture and release. EQMOD2 can also control the shutter (at least rudimentary).
Now, is there any way I could skip the whole extra serial cable ordeal and utilize the configuration I have already? It would save me some hassle. I tried using the same COM port as ASCOM, but of course that doesn't work when EQMOD is connected. Neither does it work using the COM port as Relay.
I'm a bit stumped. This seems like such an elegant solution, controlling the camera through the mount and ASCOM. Is there any possibility that this feature can be included in BYN? Or am I overseeing anything?
