Help with older Sky Scan mount....
      #5459869 - 10/07/12 09:11 PM Attachment (23 downloads)

Hi all, i am attempting to rebuild an older Sky Scan 2001 tripod and mount. It is probably from the late nineties.It looks alot like an older vixen mount if that helps.In the photo i've posted i am showing in my hand a collapsible spring connector.It is broken.It is the connection between the drive shaft coming out of the mount and the RA stepper motor.I believe it is aluminum. My question would anyone have any old parts stored away for this type of mount? A friend has bought this mount reletivly cheap in the hope to fix it up and thats what i intend to do.

Any help would be appreciated...

Dave

Check McMaster or MSC under flexible couplings.
