Hi,

Anybody ever install the skytour encoders/computer on the old-style Gibraltar? How difficult is it?

Thanks,

Bill

I did not find it too difficult installing the Sky Tour hardware on my TelePod , only problem I had was trying to neatly remove the TeleVue cover off the altitude bearing. Also don't forget to get the encoder kit designated for the old Gilbralter mount. ;)
