telescope drives and digital setting circles

Post by NEVADA SKY » Wed Jan 23, 2002 9:13 pm

I want to add dual axis drives and digital setting circles to my dobsonian telescope. There are a number of sites that offer parts of these systems but not the entire system. They might supply info. or the interface or the motors but not the entire system. Building the interface but not being able to get the correct gearbox or the correct motors is not what I want to do. Ill bet some of you that have done robots will have a lot of info and suppliers. Any suggestions or info. will be gladly appreciated.

Cellestron Should have all you need. Last time I saw their new stuff, ten years back, they sold digital drives, Tripod, and computer tracking by punching in a code or name, and the star was in your sights.
