eq5 guiding - possible?
« on: 17:13:01, 20 May, 2005 »
Hi, I'm sorting out getting the eq5 and have been looking into the motor drives to plan ahead.  Ive noticed the eq5 uses dual drives, I know the rA drive on my lil newt is just a set sidereal rate and always assumed the dec motor was just used in guiding?

The sites I've seen selling it show it with the hand controller that my clock drive uses. Is it that the dec motor is controleed using this hand controller, or is it used via the pc in guiding?

Thanks guys
Liam :D
