Meade's USB to RS-232 Serial Adapter permits the connection of any Meade telescope's RS-232 serial interface computer, allowing you to use the Meade #505 Cable Connector Kit with Software or #506 Cable Connector Kit with Software to connect your telescope to the PC. A driver for the USB adapter is included on a CD, which effectively creates a virtual serial port within the PC. The USB adapter and software are compatible with Windows 98, ME, 2000 and XP.

      Comments about Meade USB to RS-232 Serial Adapter:

      This cable is one special cable. I don't know how I lived without it until now. It has solved -all- my problems. This cable should be available everywhere.Seriously, this cable is just an adapter cable and I haven't actually used it yet, but I'm sure it will be fine. It's of good construction. [...] I hope that it might work to connect other serial (RS-232) devices and not just the Meade telescope control. It should be included in the original product; very few computers have RS-232 ports any more. USB should be the standard interface.
