I've done, it does work. The supatrak handset has a rudimentary form of goto allowing you to store a number of terrestrial targets which can be returned to. The mount uses optical encoders to control the movement of the mount so the hardware is already there for the Synscan handset. The Supatrak can also be controlled from a laptop via a suitable interface. SGL member RWG made an interface as described here https://sites.google.com/site/rwgastro/supatrakmounthacking and a similar one here http://www.autopano.net/wiki-fr/action/view/T%C3%AAte_astronomique_Multi-fonctions_Merlin_Interface .

Many thanks for your help, Jambouk I'm afraid I'm in Bristol area , but thanks for the offer. I had a good idea it would work , but wanted it confirmed before I shelled out for the handset.

There was a handset on abs yesterday i think.

Put a wanted add and say you'll pay £75. I'm sure someone will want to sell one, and just need a prompt. £100 always seems quite steep to me.

Good luck.
