COMPLETED - SOLD. Argo Navis and Servocat Units

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

NOW SOLD - Thanks Graham

These units were uninstalled from my Mesu 200 mount which has been reconfigured with a Sitech controller. Sale includes:

- ServoCat Gen-3 unit
- ServoCat hand controller
- Argo Navis unit (Version 3.0.1 firmware)
- Argo Navis cradle
- Argo Navis Software Install + Instructions disk 
- Long (several metres) serial cable for PC control of ArgoNavis
- ServoCat power lead (12V car cigar style plug on the supply side) 

No other wires, motors or encoders - you'll need to add these. 

ServoCat drives the encoders in both RA and DEC as well as receiving guiding information. Argo Navis acts as a stand alone controller (no PC needed). Both have been installed on a wide range of telescope mounts, large and small.

For ServoCat see: http://www.stellarcat.com/Pages/servocat.html

For Argo Navis see: https://www.wildcard-innovations.com.au

This is a highly capable system costing upwards of £1200 new, and should be a good deal for someone who wants to add high precision, highly configurable go-to control to almost any kind of mount. The buyer will need some technical capability - it's not "plug and play", and you'll need to add motors, cabling etc - but there is information in the manuals (available online) to help.
