Which 2.5mm stero jack should I get?

Hey guys. This is my first post on here :) So glad I found you guys.

So I just got an Orion GoTo 1st generation (no camera jack) :rolleyes:

I plan to solder the female jack to the controller as instructed by claudevh http://www.kolor.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=14147


Question is which female jack will fit inside the head? Currently my head is being ship so I can't tell.

a) Panel Mount 2.5mm Female Mono Audio Cable Plug Jack Socket Adapter J24

b) 2.5mm Female Audio Connector 3 Pin SMT Stereo Phone Jack PJ208

as for the actual cable. So far I have purchased

http://www.ebay.com/itm/LS-2-5-C1-Shutter-Release-Cord-Cable-for-Yongnuo-RF-603-C1-Canon-1000D-550D-500D-/321044645355 for T2i



If neither 2.5mm female jacks above wouldn't fit. Can you show me which/where to buy.

Many thanks
