If you have never heard of this, it's a board that replaces the Vixen control board exactly and turns your mount into a CGEPRO as far as the brains go and can then be controlled only by a Nexstar HC or Nexremote.

You may want to look at the Sphinx Yahoo group, it has several discussions about this item. It looks like in general those who have done so really like it, especially for SXD users.

Right now I have a SXW and I have don't have some of the root problems that the NexSXD claims to resolve, plus I'm one of the few APers that like to use StarBook.
