What's this gizmo?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me what this is?

It came with a Meade SCT I had a while back, and I've no idea what it's for.

From google, looks like the smartfinder was integrated with the LNT module - the electronics measured tilt/level of the scope, magnetic north and provided battery backed time and date... with timecode receiver - 3.5mm jack is provision for an external short wave antenna. Some suggestions it was tuned to WWV/Colorado so don't know if they had a UK/MSF version?

Might be wrong, interesting stuff.

So that's what it is.

It's of no use to me, so it's free to anyone who wants it. I don't even know if it works.
