Can I use Sky X Serious Astronomer with Losmandy G11?... what cable is needed to connect to laptop?
does it come with the mount?
Do you have the Gemini-2 mount controller? If so, you can connect via serial (RS-232), USB or Ethernet. See this third-party article for some tips on establishing these connections. If you choose to use the serial port to connect to a computer's USB port, then see this post about recommended serial-to-USB converters.
Aside from the physical connection, you would configure TheSkyX to use an appropriate mount option listed under the Losmandy Astronomical Products heading in the Choose Mount window, then under Settings, specify the connection port.
On Windows (only) you could alternatively configure TheSkyX to use the ASCOM Mount option and then, under Settings, choose the "Gemini Telescope .NET" option from the ASCOM Telescope Chooser window (you'll need to have installed the latest ASCOM Platform and the ASCOM Gemini Telescope .NET "driver"). Note that ASCOM isn't required for the TheSkyX-native support of the Gemini-series controllers.
