I have almost finished the 10" f/7 I have been working on for a while. It saw the first light a few nights ago, not going to win prizes for elegance or craftmanship but I am very happy with it.
The RA tracking uses an AC motor and I am fine with it since I plan to leave the telescope home all the time; however, I would like to have a simple controller, like stop/fast so that I can center objects in the field at high magnification, overcome irregularities and delays in tracking etc. It was a must on my old Starfinder mount, and this one is much older.
I really don't know anything about electronics, so I would be grateful if someone could explain me how to do it. I really just need stop/fast (or slow/fast); adjustable speed as a bonus, but only if easy to implement.
Thanks in advance folks.
