Awesome, you do have the Dec slow motion. Is the motor with it? If not, you might be able to find a replacement.

That Lumicon drive corrector is nice. Probably better than the Meade unit.

Tim,
I did not get a Dec motor with it. To answer you question earlier, it has a raised ring around the pier cap that was machined in.

I always loved the look of the chromed RG scopes, pretty scope.
Have fun with it
