iEQ45 GEM To Alt-Az coversion product
Posted 26 July 2013 - 08:57 AM
I have it mostly all installed, not that it's a big job at all - it's not. The weather just turned ugly and my 'todo' list blew its top, leaving me no time to finish it up yet.
I love the MTII dual scope Alt-Az. I can mount my two lightweights; AT72ED and the C6 SCT at the same time; bliss!! Now with this mount I can load up the 6" Achro and the 10" Meade! WOW! I'm cringing already; they both weigh in at nearly 28 lb's each. so load as well as balance shouldn't be an issue... but my hind brain isn't going along with it until it sees it :-) I haven't seen the software yet; I hope it includes the auto-balancing routines in this mode too.

I wasn't aware of it - but I do like my iEQ45, and would be interested to hear more of your experiences with the Alt-Az mode.

So, sorry no one's got any experience to share with you, but I join the list of those awaiting your reports.
