I was was wondering if the manual but motorisable S-W EQ5 can be used in an alt az configuration as the Vixen SP models could. The EQ5 has slow motion controls but are as OE crude.

 

IF alt az is possible, would Skytee2 slo mo cables fit? Does the mount take Losmandy D clamps such as ADM make?

 

For occasional EQ use, is there a right angle diagonal adaption for its pole finder sight?
