MERLIN / SKYWATCHER Multi-Function Mount // ORION TELE TRACK

Post by claudevh » Tue Nov 27, 2007 5:55 am

Hello all,

The "MERLIN / SKYWATCHER Multi-Function Mount // ORION TELE TRACK" seems to be a small, affordable and easy for transportation Alt/Az mount.

So ... is it possible to control this mount with one of the Shoestring Astronomy fantastic interfaces like EQDIR or GPUSB ?
If yes wat will be the cabling ?
If not, is it possible to look at the possibilities?

The "MERLIN / SKYWATCHER Multi-Function Mount // ORION TELE TRACK" is not only interresting for "astronomy" but also for "panoramic photgraphy".

Thank-you in advance for your response

Claude

After looking into it a little, I don't see any easy way to do this. The only thing would be to hack into the handcontroller and add relays in parallel with the direction buttons.
