So you'll notice in my signature line that I've got my old school 10" f/10 Meade 2080 (just a clock motor in the base) back from the college.  Purchased in 1993, I donated it two years ago when I got my 12" f/8 Meade ACF.  When the encoder failed I was dead in the water until I got that repair completed and the college I hadn't used it since COVID at the college due to protocols in place.  Now that I've got it back, I've got a back-up scope to work with.  Just have to reinstall the drive corrector, DEC slow-motion motor, and the Motofocus and will  try it out during the next few weeks.  Having some astigmatism issues with my 12" ACF so this will be a good comparison scope.
