maybe nice for a dslr? is it usable with a sw 150P-DS?

A 150pds with associated bits would be way too heavy for an AZ-Gti. I have both.

I also have a diy astro-EQ, which I used to convert an eq-5 to goto. I bought the two programmed chips and a circuit board from Tom's website for £12.70 delivered and then made it myself. Had never done anything of that level of soldering before, but it worked first time (no-one more surprised than me 😂). 

The surprises keep rolling in as it is still going strong two and a half years later 👍. Highly recommended.

I'll take a shot at this since I don't need to buy anything to try it but my spare time... if I decide to implement it I only need the a box to enclosure all, motors mount, some pulleys and the timing belt... so Maybe next weekend I'll give it a try...

That looks very close.  Mine didn't ever fail in that way so I'm afraid I can't offer any help at this stage.

Anyone knows how to contact the AstroEQ developer?

Still waiting to get into the forum but :

Your account is still awaiting admin approval.

I don't appear to have any contact details for Tom I'm afraid.  The only thing I can think of is to try to contact him directly through the website.  I suspect however that it will go to the same place as the signup requests.
