autoguide input for celestron ultima dc servo ?
      #6150378 - 10/21/13 06:35 PM

Does the old 9v Celestron ultima DC servo drive take a standard auto guider camera input for guiding in the hand control jack? maybe with a shoestring adapter? thanks. Ron

No. I couldn't get mine to work with an ST-4 input, anyway. What I had to do was put a relay box between HC input on the Ultima and the guider output. Sorry.

Just post this for a future 'data point' in case someone has the question. I tried it and it works! No relay. Just using PHD on macbook pro w/ a Shoestring GPUSB.
