SSAG with AP800 mount new
      #3942122 - 07/24/10 07:17 PM

Does anyone know if the Orion SSAG would work on the old AP800 mount that does has the provision for the ST4 in the
control paddle. I have this old mount and would like to use it as part of a portable imaging setup but I'm not
sure if the SSAG is compatable .
The reason I ask is that the SBIG Relay Adapter Box is offered and I wasn't sure if this mount needed it.
There doesn't seem to be very many people using the SSAG with the ap800 mount. At least no one posts
any info on the internet. Sooo...thought I'd ask. I think the mount would work well enough for wide field
imaging. There are more modern mount available but since I have one I thought I'd use it, but don't want to fry something. Any input will be appreciated.

The only place I have seen any kind of information remotely similar to that is the Company 7 website. While not specific, it does talk about the original ST-4 and references the relays needed to get that up and working.
