Quote:...As for motors. The current motor (MT-1) and hand controller (DD-1) from Vixen work absolutely fine with SP.

Quote:I cannot recall ever hearing or reading one bad word about the Super Polaris mount.
Quote:I too have the old original Polaris mount. Got it for so cheap.And have to say, even this thing is 20 years old it still operates better than the chinese clones (EQ3/CG4)...
Quote:Mike, I have BOTH Polaris and Super PolarisThey are currently "vacant" (as the scopes that used to sit on them were sold) but I am planning to mount my 120ED on SP tonight and try.
Quote:Nice rig Barry.I have the later black finish SP with the DEC motor bracket built-in.
Quote: Primary differences you can see between the regular SP and the DX included the block seen between the RA setting circles and the Dec. housing.
Quote:what about the dovetail on the SP? i have a chance to get the black model from the 80's- it has the motor drives and original sky sensor (probably worthless by todays go-to standards)- my concern is will my CG5 type OTA dovetails work on the mount?- i cant seem to get a clear picture of this- the mountings on the newer GP use the standard vixwn type of today-- what mod will the SP need top accept these?
