Creative and economical computerizing of your telescope mount!
The primary focus of this group is the creative and inexpensive retrofit of Meade Autostar GOTO control to the popular Vixen GP-style mounts, which includes the Vixen SP, SP-DX, GP, GP-E and GP-DX, the Celestron CG-5, Synta EQ-4, EQ-5, Jinghua HD, Orion Skyview Pro and others. Big fork and GEM mounts are popular retrofit projects too.
In fact we welcome creative GOTO projects of any kind. We all want to learn!
