    I am using the SG-4 RS 232 cable with USB-2 converter during set up. The test indicates a 9600 baud rate. The download of a single image takes several minutes. Is this typical?

    If so, I assume things will go faster once I try to focus on a star by zooming in.

    I assumed from the manual (page 6) that it would automatically find the fastest rate during test.

    I used the settings drop down menu as per your recommendation. I'm now functioning at the highest rate.

    Thanks for the response.

    I think you misinterpreted what the manual says. If the software doesn't immediately find the SG-4, it tries all available baud rates until it connects. That's in case you change the baud rate but the software doesn't have the same setting.
