My 200P just arrived and oh my God... I have been trying to wrap my head around the mount for 4 hours.
The manual didn't really help so I decided to go on youtube, but again, I didn't find any good and detailed videos so I decided to ask here if there is any video or perhaps blog post that might help me set up the mount.
Thank you very much!
*by the way, is the EQ5 supposed to have slow motion cables? I only got 2 knobs (not cables) and I'm not sure if there is something missing or not... sorry, this is the first time I've used a serious equatorial mount or telescope.
Thank you very much!
Sorry if this has already been asked ( I think it would have been, there are posts similar but can't see the the answer I'm looking for)
I have a celestron C8-N scope that came with a Cg5 mount, it's at least 10 years old and although it had a lot of use to start with it's been gathering dust the last few years.
So I would like to fit a motorised goto mount to it and was considering a synscan pro3 for an Eq5 mount.
Can someone tell me are these 2 mounts the same and if so will the synscan be OK for my Cg5 mount.
If not are there any others I should look at?
Friends, I am back with a tutorial video on how to modify your Sky Watcher HEQ5-PRO mount or its American twin, the Orion Sirius EQ-G into a belt driven mount.
The benefits of converting to a belt drive is that you don't have to worry about Backlash. The procedure took me about an hour to complete.

Hi, I recently made a video of how to mount a Sesto Senso focus motor to a Starlight feather touch focuser.
I have now also made a video of how to calibrate it and also how to measure the backlash of the rack and pinion gear of the focuser.
This method is not limited to a starlight feather touch focuser but could be performed on all kinds of focuser.
I hope this video makes it easier for anyone out there having problems with backlash.
You can also check out my other videos of the focuser / focus motor here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCm50WzpT1YKCwghW13b6k-g?view_as=subscriber
