Help please with new EQ6

Recommended Posts

With the Aussie dollar, AKA the Pacific Peso, in free-fall, I bit the bullet today and paid a deposit on the SynScan upgrade kit. Must have been old stock at the equivalent of £300.00

I'm doing some groundwork for my SynScan upgrade so next question.  :confused:

Looking at pics of the EQ6 motherboard I can see both motor connectors and a LED connector. Is the LED connector where I plug the Polar Scope illuminator control in ? I can't seem to find a pic of the back of the mobo.

Yes.. the LED connector will be for the illumination of the polar scope.

I have fitted an upgrade kit to exactly the same mount, and although straight forward there is a tricky bit in that you have to mesh the cogs by touch, as with you hands in place the motors are totally hidden and the mesh is also ipossibel to see. It can take a couple of goes to get it dead on. Hope all goes well. mine has been running for two years now and no issues or re-adjustment has been needed.
