Telescope model in Autostar?? #5394789 - 08/30/12 11:40 AM
I have a 120mm refractor on my Lxd55 mount. I was using the 127mm telescope as my model. Would it be better to use the ETX 125mm? That give me the choice of using the Polar mount and the Alt/az. If I change the model, will I have to recalibrate the motors and do another train drive? What difference does it make as to which model you choose? Thanks. Jim

I don't have a LXD55 mount but I would have to say that the model selection would have to follow the mount the Autostar is connected not what OTA it is moving. Gear ratios, encoders, counts per degree, a configuration sort of thing. Brian
