Will this work?

Recommended Posts

Periodic Error - This is a matter of manufacturing tolerances - no gear system is perfectly formed and no matter how accurately produced the motor and gears may be, they will not move at exactly the correct speed ad infinitum. Regular errors are introduced by these imperfections called ‘Periodic Errors’ as they happen over a regular period of time.

Ah I see.

So it might not be worth the effort?

At least it would replace the handset and add options :D


My long term goal is to Image and Observe each with dedicated scopes.

Dont get me wrong, it will work and you should be able to get a guiding setup out of it. I use a CG5 with a handset i modded myself following the instructions in Steve's book and the Shoestring GPUSB unit.
