Adding guide port conversion kit to single-axis eq3 hand box

Post by Mitchell » Sat May 08, 2021 10:43 am

Has anyone added the guide port conversion kit to a single-axis eq3 motor drive hand controller?
Are there any instructions on how wire it up?
I have a GPUSB box and cables. I will purchase the conversion kit if I can get directions on how to wire it up to my single-axis controller. Searching the web tells me I am not alone in wanting to do this but I have not found any directions. Are the hand controllers really so different inside that I can't just use the existing instructions and only make the RA connections in my hand box?

If you would take it apart and email pictures of the top and bottom side of the printed circuit board, I will do my best to help out. My email address is doug@shoestringastronomy.com
