Question re CG4 and CG5 (non-goto) dual axis contr
Posted 10 July 2009 - 07:25 AM
ie 144:1 (10min per wormwheel rotation on 1x siderial rate) .
If so is the dual axis controller for the CG4 (part no.93522) identical in operation to that for the non-goto CG5 (part no.93523) ?
I want to track down a spare 93523 (or clone/equivalent) that is fully functional that I can modify to add an interface to a Skyshoot Autoguider.

No. CG4 (EQ3-2) has a different worm ratio than CG5 (EQ4/EQ5) RA worm's 144:1.

I suspected that was the case re CG4.
Will see if I can solve the problem with the old controller , bit of luck my old mate in the electrical engg dept lab can help out with testing it to id the source of the problem.
