I have bought a used CG5 non goto mount with single RA drive.
it has the Skywatcher EQ5 hand controller 6v DC.

the controls seem a bit complex compared to the celestron hand controller.

can i use a dual axis hand controller and simply not plug the Dec motor lead. looks a much simpler control layout.
