Hi, I’m looking for a hard protective case for my EQ6 pro mount for when I’m transporting it. Just for the mount ‘head’...not weight and tripod. Anyone have any recommendations? Also, as a massive favour, anyone who has this mount...would you please be able to measure it for me (LxWxH)...I don’t have my mount at home at the moment. id imagine it’s roughly the same size as the EQ6-R / NEQ6. If anyone can help me out I’d appreciate it no end Ant
Hi once again... After spending a year with the mount i built i managed to gather some info about go to systems. I am in my final year of mechanical engineering and will be displaying the mount as my project....but will b dding a go to system to it. I will b getting help from the information technology team to programme the mount. What i learnt is that you can control the telescope motion through stellarium using a raspberry pi microprocessor, a bluetooth dongle and potentiometers for motion sensing. I seen this video on youtube and will share tge link...if someone could rell me if this same setup would work on an equitorial mount??? For example...can the alt and az co ordinates be swapd with tge co ordinates of RA abd DEC...??? You can find the video on youtube...by searching Telescope + raspberry pi + stellarium =itelescope
