Which Wireless Game Pad for Mount?
My current setup is:
SW EQ6 Mount
SW 80mm Scope
Canon T21 Camera
ZWo ASI120 Guide Camera
Anker Power Hub
I image indoors so all of above runs via USB Power Hub to Laptop. I also use my hand controller (indoors) hooked to laptop running Stellarium and BYEOS.
I would like to use a wireless game pad (at the scope) for moving the mount when needed. I already have a PS3 wireless pad but assume that I cannot use that one due to not having a receiver? So am wondering which pads are recommended. Also, how is the game pad configured to talk to the mount? And, does the receiver get connected to power hub or directly to laptop? I assume that doesn't matter but want to make sure.
Or can you only use a game pad IF you have EQMOD?
P.S. - Please do not recommend getting EQMOD. I will be getting that in the future but for now, am still getting used to everything else.
