I have installed TheSky SA edition on my MAC power book. I have a usb serial adapter seen by the MAC but I am not able to connect to the Synscan system. In the PDF manual Synscan is listed but if I go to telescope and telescope set up the SKY Watcher brand is not even listed among the various telescopes
SkyWatcher models are listed under "Orion Telescopes & Binoculars" in TheSkyX's list of supported mounts/telescopes. Most, if not all, of the SkyWatcher, Orion and Celestron go-to telescopes share the same NexStar communications protocol.
If your exact model isn't listed, you could use the "Any model using the SynScan controller" option.
One thing to be aware of is this note from page 31 of the SkyWatcher SynScan manual:
Note: The SynScan hand control cannot work with [an astronomical] application when it is in the following status:
It is a common mistake to put the SynScan in PC Direct mode, but this should not be done when connecting with a program such as TheSkyX.
