     I also have had the pleasure of working with Serge to outfit two mounts built in the last Century made by Ed Byers.  He asked questions and had very good suggestions.  I settled on 311,000 tik encoders on both the Series One mount and the Byers 5-8 mount. This provides a much greater pointing accuracy than the 8k encoders I was using with a Lumicon DSC unit.

 

    Serge really helped us with the installation of the system by making some custom mounting brackets, using a 3D printer,   We just needed to give him a drawing with accurate dimensions. The mounting brackets fit perfectly and are very durable

 

    Personally I enjoy very much working with Serge who is helpful in every way.

Fo the 12" it might be better to go with the higher resolution azimuth encoder. If it was a 10" then it would not give you a lot of advantages.

 

Best Regards,

Serge.

Serge,

 

Can you elaborate on the differences with the 12" scope and the two encoders? I received my package from you ( thanks) but did order the lower resolution encoder setup for my 12 and am now wondering if I made a mistake.

 

Thanks

 

Brian
