GP2: Grab and go AND beginning imaging? new
      #4562370 - 05/04/11 10:42 PM

Do you think the Vixen GP2 can be used to learn imaging using short fl scopes? I would like very much to start with RA motors only and build my way up into auto guiding. Then I would buy another mount just for AP and use the GP2 as grab and go. The problem with this plan is the DD-3 control box. It’s listed on Vixen (http://www.vixen.co.jp/English/info_new_e.htm - Product No.37912-5) but I don’t find it anywhere else.

I wouldn’t like to mess with goto at this time.

The DD-3 is a new product. I can only suggest that you contact Vixen to find out when it will be available.

The GP-2 is an excellent mount for imaging with a small scope
