Celestron 4/5 SE ST4 Kit

Postby bigbaldyalastro » Thu Jun 22, 2017 5:33 pm

Hi, Is it possible to retro fit an ST4 autoguide port to a Celestron 4/5 SE mount? The 6/8 SE mount has one factory fitted but not on the smaller mount. I thought it may be a viable product if possible to design.

I do not have access to this mount myself to investigate if this is possible, but this document might help give you some ideas.

Thanks for that but I don't really want to modify the handset really as I use it with other mounts. Thanks for the ideas though.
