Re: Losmandy G11 with Gemini II questions new [Re: Lane]

The original Losmandy encoder are not available. You "can" get encoders from several other sources that will work. I have a set of encoders on my G11 that I have setup to work with the Gemini-1. I've upgraded my mount to a HGM-200 (the forerunner of the Titan) and moved my Gemini-2 to that. The HGM-200 has built in encoders but Gemini-2 doesn't support them at this time. I believe that support is one of the future features of G2. I hope so, I do a lot of outreach with the BSA with both Cubscouts (boys 6-11) & Boyscouts (Boys 11-18). The Boyscouts aren't too bad. They generally don't put their hands on the scope more than once. The Cubscouts do it everytime which moves the scope. With my G11 &, encoders & SkyCommander it was simple to move the scope back on target.
