EQ5 Handset Mod and altair webcam with ST4 port

Post by gutbucket » Sat Oct 01, 2016 6:58 am

I have carried out the EQ5 Mod on the handset for dual motors and all seems to be ok with the buttons for RA and DEC still working correctly. I have yet to test guiding.

Just a question regarding the Mod. Will it guide ok with an Altair Camera on a Guidescope then connected with a ST4 cable connected to the modded handset and camera then USB from the Camera to my laptop using PHD guiding software. I have a feeling this should be the setup but just wanted to check.

Thanks.

Glad to hear the mod is working. I see no reason why the setup you propose should not work.

Enjoy!
