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.
I got my baby back baby back baby back...
