Celestron cge pro motor

Recommended Posts

Hi anyone out there.

i was having issues with my CGE pro mount in that I thought the source of my problem was the electronics pier. I fear something shorted within the pier as there is minimal response via the hand control to slew commands or moving to switch position etc. The focus motor is working via it’s connection to the electronics pier.

Can any member advise if there is any way to determine whether the RA and DEC motors are still working while not using the electronics pier. Rather than scrap the motors there may be some deserving soul who could use them.


Help and advice in anticipation much appreciated.

Hi and thanks for the reply. I have an OnStep setup ready to install but if the motors were still working they could be sold on. This would mitigate the cost of the OnStep set up.

Any ideas on checking the motors?

Sorry on the delay in replying, I didn't see your response until today..

Pitman motors I think are discontinued , or really hard to get hold of..
