Nice Upgrade to and Atlas EQ-G or EQ6
29 December 2022  | 

I replaced my Atlas EQ-G motor controller with this and am very pleased with it so far. It will add a power locking connector, SNAP DSLR port and a USB port to the mount. it still has the hand controller port but its no longer a 9 pin din its a RJ-45 connection which a coiled cable is supplied for your hand controller. There is a Cigarette lighter 12v cable included as well, for the new threaded power connector. The Polar LED connector on the motherboard is different and it comes with a replacement LED assembly you pop in to replace the original. It does change the sound of you RA and DEC motors to a whirl sound as they spin up, its a unique sound. I installed this on a Rowan Belt modded unit so the whirl sound could get drowned out with the original grinding of the original configured gears, I think you would still hear a difference. But this is just an observation not a compliant, I assume the stepper motor pulse are different to make the sound. This should work for several of the EQ6 models, it looks like its an EQ6R board mounted to a square plate, for the Atlas it is white and your mount is black, no biggie for me and it helps me differentiate my non Rowan Atlas and this my Cadillac modded unit. I think I will go ahead and get one of these for my older Atlas too, the built in USB and threaded power is nice. Thanks...
