Slew by hand on GOTO mount - am I missing something obvious?

Recommended Posts

Daft question time. I have a Sky Watcher Goto mount.

On the occasions I don't want to be bothered aligning and or have no power but want to have a poke around, is there a way to move it manually? The mount won't move left to right on the tripod.

Do I have to control by the controller all the time ?

I know the answer is Get A Dob but shush ;-)

Hi, what your asking for seems reasonable to me, I have been eyeing up a Skywatcher auto and was wondering the same.....

It might actually put me off the idea of getting one, unless I get a manual and install another auto system which does allow manual intervention
