Bresser Duo Motors

Recommended Posts

From looking at pictures of the motors I would hazzard 'no' without some chassis modification.

Fr-instance, although the SW motors for the EQ3-2 and EQ5 are identical, they are not directly interchangeable due to different mounting brackets. With some DIY they can be swapped.

I'll guess that you are not buying a set of new Bressers they are more expensive than an EQ5 Ra/Dec set from SW, your problem will likely be in the motor mount and motor to axis coupling which a certain amount of DIY ingenuity might overcome.

Sorry but no direct experience with the Bressers, so could be totally wrong.

It might be possible. The Bresser Mon 2 / Meade LXD55 , Synta Eq5 and Celestron CG5 are all clones of the Vixen GP mount. According to Telescope Express the Synta EQ5 dual axis motors and Synscan Goto upgrade will fit the Mon 2 so it should also be possible for the Mon 2 duo motors to fit the EQ5 http://www.teleskop-express.de/shop/product_info.php/info/p399_Skywatcher-Dual-Axis-Stepper-Motor-Drive-System-for-EQ5.html .
