I can be a bit slow on the uptake I have only just realised, apart from the obvious tucked in motors, what else has changed with the new Losmandy mounts compared to my 10 year old GM8. They have moved the worm block from below the RA axis. The worm block is now above the RA axis. The latitude scale now starts at 0 degrees and goes to 70 degrees while on my old GM8 it starts at 10 degrees and goes up to 70 degrees, this is actually what I first noticed. This is the same for the new GM8G, GM811G, G11G, but not the G11T. The G11T still has the worm block below the RA axis and the latitude scale for this mount still starts at 10 degrees.
Does this mean that if you set your RA to 0 degrees mechanically you have a goto azimuth mount in the same manner as the Skywatcher AZ-EQ6 . The problem would be a software one with Gemini needed updated code to handle this. The RA axis handling altitude while the declination axis is the azimuth.
On a related matter what is terrestrial tracking?
I assume it’s not what I’m describing above or they could simply already have called the mount for example the AZ-GM8G
