  1. Hi John, thanks for getting in touch. Your setup looks impressive. I've never used a goto mount (just manual) so looking forward to trying it. The app also is a good idea, I guess with that you don't need to use the handset anymore. Like I said my mount is a Celestron Cg5 which I'm told is the same as a Eq5. So if I can get a goto upgrade for it it will be a lot cheaper than buying a new tripod/mount I have read though that a goto on a Eq5 with a 8" scope might not give as smooth a tracking as a lighter scope, but I guess a lighter scope could be a future investment if it turns out to be the case Roger
  2. OK thanks for that, that sounds brilliant, will check that out. Should be OK with soldering etc as work as Engineer. Thanks again
  3. Thanks, for that... Yes very informative
  4. Hi, Sorry if this has already been asked ( I think it would have been, there are posts similar but can't see the the answer I'm looking for) I have a celestron C8-N scope that came with a Cg5 mount, it's at least 10 years old and although it had a lot of use to start with it's been gathering dust the last few years. So I would like to fit a motorised goto mount to it and was considering a synscan pro3 for an Eq5 mount. Can someone tell me are these 2 mounts the same and if so will the synscan be OK for my Cg5 mount. If not are there any others I should look at? Thanks
