despite having read many threads on the web, I cannot figure out what are the main differences between the versions 1 and 2 of Losmandy's Gemini Gotos?
Looking for second hand G11, at least in France, it seems there is a 1000€ price difference between the ones equiped with Gemini 2 instead of Gemini 1. To understand whether it is worht the difference for my use of it, I need first to understand which functionalities or maintenability I might loose, while choosing a Gemini 1.
If anyone knows, she or he is welcome!
The primary differences are
1- Tucked high torque servo motors > Stronger motors.
2- spring loaded one piece worm gears > Better tracking and many owners will upgrade this on their Gen1's
3- upgraded Gemini 2 computer > more modern

There are many Losmandy owners in Europe that enjoy their Gen1's and the Gen2's some of the Gen1's are thirty years old and still going strong.
HAPPY SKIES AND KEEP LOOKING UP Jethro
P.S.The Losmandy G11G is the last GEM that I will ever need.
