Clear skies.....David AT111EDT G-11, Gemini ST2000XCM
6"f15 D&G, 6"f5 Jaegers.
TSA 102, TV60.
Docter 15x60, 10x50.
Quote:My requirements are fairly straight-forward:1. Steady enough to support an 8" SCT or 4~5" refractor2. Precision manual operation3. Motorised for sidereal (and ideally lunar & planetary) tracking(...)Three questions about the G-11S rig:1. What is the $425 digital setting circle hardware accessory (and do I need / want it)?2. Do I need the $125 clutch knob set to switch between manual and motorised operation (like on the Vixen)?3. Is the G-11 significantly 'better' than the GPD2, and what are there any real pitfalls to the G-11 that I am not taking into account?
