Made a new video, this is a Astro Systeme Austria specific video, which has direct driven servo motors.
To get them to perform perfectly and be able to track unguided, you have to tune theese motors.
I made a quick video of how the three different methods is working in the "Autoslew" software to run theese mounts.
Maybe this method of tuning mount motors is related to other brands which has direct driven mounts?

Forgive a newbie questions…
I just (at last) got a Celestron C8 with fork and wedge, but on a Meade tripod. (No telescoping legs) Looks like the Standard Field Tripod BUT missing the center leg brace plate and the Telescoping legs… I think it is a version with 36 Inch fixed legs.
This is an upgrade to my childhood wanted got as an older adult (sadly) Criterion 6 inch Newtonian.
But One of the clock motors does not run, so this is a two part question:
One where can I get a replacement??
And or I read that the later models now use a D/C motor, can I get one (or two) to replace my A/C motor (s), especially as I want to use the scope out in the middle of nowhere as I live in Phoenix AZ and I have given up on my Criterion 6 Inch as we can barely see more than a dozen stars on a good night.
So a 12 drive system would be better that a 112 A/C up convertor.
I could also use a source for used parts if there is one or more.
I am a newbie on this forum, this is my first topic here but I would like to show you my recent planetary imaging results. I started to catch the planets with a dedicated planetary camera last month but never thought that a small 4" Maksutov can show such small details. The equpment I used:
SW 102/1300 Maksutov 2.25x Q-turret Barlow lens QHY5L-II color camera EQ-3 GOTO mount All the images were taken on differend countrysides in Hungary. I hope you will like it
Also, please share your images taken with similar OTA, I'd like to learn some tricks from others as well
Jupiter's 15 minutes of rotation. Captured with Firecapture, processed in AS!3, Registax and WinJUPOS (2020.08.21)
Saturn, 1 hours stacked with AS!3, processed in Registax (2020.09.05)
Mars, 3 hours of rotation. Captured with Firecapture, stacked with AS!3, processed in Registax. (2020.08.22)
Mars again, 5 minutes stacked in AS!3, processed in Registax. You can see also Olympus Mons and Arsia Mons next to the terminator (2020.09.05)
Finally, a result of a Hungarian star party where I learned how to use properly my equipment This time I borrowed an ADC for Saturn.
