Hello community
Hello colleagues,

 

I would like to change the Boxdorfer MTS3 controller from my CI 700 Celestron mount to another manual controller (building), does anyone have an idea how to do this?

 

Since the Boxdorfer control cannot really be used for a solid GOTO with the PC.

 

The mount has two Escap stepper motors, retrofitted for GOTO, where it can be controlled by GUIDE.

 

Is it possible to continue using the two Escap motors?

Or do you possibly need other (servo) motors?

Thank you in advance for your suggestions.

 

CS Toni

The stepper motors are OK. Look at OnStep.
