Certainly, if you run it with steppers or servo motors.
Thats's a really cool Scope Tim.

For a while, I had a Sidereal Technology goto kit installed in my mid-90s vintage Tak EM-500. The beauty of the system is that you can change the set the motor drive rates for multiple mounts in software. I'm sure other goto kits out there can do it as well.

Its the cheapest new conversion (cheaper than a SiTech or Gemini 2). You can get cheaper with a used Vixen Sky sensor 2k or the auto star drive off a Meade LXD55 or 75.
