not the complete answer, but here you can find an overview of cablenames & cammodels...
which one fits if more are listed should be easily be googled...

here you can look for the names listed for kolor panogear/orion/merlin:

Is your Merlin Mount a very old GoTo model?

If you have no "female stereo plug 2.5 mm" into the Snap shot port (see picture 1)

Then you must open the Merlin and look to the Main board, you will find te camera release connector (see picture 2)

You must connect this release connector with a small cable, 2 wires similar to RC material , and soldered on a "female stereo plug 2.5 mm" according to the schema (see picture 3)

Ty very much for your replay claudevh !
I have found that the male pink jack 2,5mm of the camera have separate pole for Focus and Shutter instead on opto coupler prerealease and shutter are connected togheter.
This don't cause short circuit?
On the camera release connector have to respect the polarity?

Hello Fiore,

There is no risk of "short circuit" (as there is NO electricity on the cable), the optocoupler give a "dry contact" !

Just prepare a new cable with 2 wires:

one side will be connected to the 2 pins of the camera release connector on the main board inside the Merlin

the other side on the small female 2.5 mm stereo plug

Have a look on the 3 pictures in my previous post ...
