Before You Start (Requirements)

As with any application, there are some requirements that you will need to meet before you can make use of EQMac. These are as follows:

  • 64-bit Intel-based Mac
  • OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) or better. Has been tested with Lion and Mountain Lion.

You will also require some method to connect your Mac to the mount. There are essentially two options here:

  1. Connection using an EQDirect-type device
  2. Connection using a generic USB Serial port via the Synscan hand control

Which ever of these options you choose (described on the next page), you will need to make sure that you've installed the OS X device driver for the EQDirect or USB Serial port that you are using. Please check with the manufacturer or supplier of your device to be sure of the correct driver to use.
