Hi All,

 

Can you fit Skywatcher Dual drives to a Bresser EXOS-2 mount?. I understand the EXOS-2 is a LXD75 / EQ5 clone?!!.. I'm just looking to see if my EQ5 dual drive set would work with this mount?.

 

Regards, Rob

From all I've read online the answer is yes but never know for certain until making the plunge.  APM telescopes in Germany lists the Skywatcher RA drive on Ebay for $117.58 but the shipping from overseas costs $32 so I haven't pulled the trigger yet.

Its only because I have the Dual drives already and hoped they would retro fit directly :)

I finally went ahead and ordered a Skywatcher EQ5 drive from the UK.  Will take a few weeks to receive but will report back how it fits the EXOS-2.
