Wanted: Owners Manual for a Takahashi EM-200 USD
      #5850674 - 05/09/13 07:00 PM

If you have the owners manual from the original USD EM-200 and would be willing to copy and email to me, I would be in your debt. I would have posted this on the Yahoo Unsensored Takahashi Group last night, but the moderator declined my membership! I'm a really good person too, always willing to help anybody out, honest, integrity, great husband and dad. Thx, Chris

Is there that much difference between the USD and USD3?

My understanding is that the USD crawls along (doesn't have a high-speed slew mode) but the USD3 can slew at high (>16X) speed. Still no GoTo though.

I appreciate the effort John, but the EM-10 is not at all the same as the EM-200. The Polar Aligning System is completely different, along with several other things, but I've copied the USDIII you pasted above, and I can make that work, since my concerns are related to the Polar Alignment Scope and from I to III, it appears unchanged. Thanks again, Chris W.

No, Art at TNR said I could buy the 24v power source w/pelican case for my USD and it would enable the high speed slew, however, it's not that big a deal to push the scope around by hand anyway .
