      • Does the RS-232 includes also have the USB adapter? Neither laptop I have has one of those COM ports. Thanks.

        Celstron does not include a USB to RS-232 adapter with the telescope, but they do distribute a compatible adapter for that purpose. You can read more about it here: https://www.optcorp.com/celestron-usb-to-rs232-converter.html
