Now for the tricky bit. Take your time to get this correct, to avoid frying the telescope mount later! A 6p6c cable is needed, about 24 inches long, with an RJ12 connector on one end only. If it has one on each end, then cut one end off and discard it. With the connector oriented as shown, gold contacts up, the pins are numbered 1,2,3,4,5,6 from left to right.

Write down which colour corresponds to which pin number. There is a standard colour scheme, but you cannot rely upon it!! This cable (pictured) seems to use a random colour ordering, quite different from the "standard" scheme. It doesn't matter. Just write down which colour corresponds to which number, 1 through 6, from left to right.
