    Very Good

    Got this to use with the RS232 cable for the celestron telescope and it works well.
    The only downside is the product CD which comes with this product there is no drivers on there for Windows 8/ Windows 10. If you search google for "CH341SER.zip" this contains the right drivers for these operating systems. Here is the link to them http://www.arduined.eu/ch340-windows-8-driver-download/
