    I have a new Celestron C6-SGT with a CG-5 mount and am having trouble getting
    Stellarium to connect to it on Mac OS Lion. I have the Celestron RS232 cable
    coming out if the controller, into an RS232 to USB converter by Pluggable
    (from Amazon.com) which feeds into the USB port of my MacBook.

    If I run ls /dev/*, my machine is recognizing the USB cable (it's listed as
    /dev/disk0s3). I put that into Stellarium as the port and select "Celestron
    Nexstar", but I can't get it to "Start' the telescope. Clicking Start just
    causes the computer to display the loading wheel, nothing happens and it still
    says the status is "Stopped".

    I've completed a polar alignment on the scope prior to trying this. Any ideas
    on what could be wrong?
