Model: EQ5GOTOkitPart Number: 20108
Note: Once fitted you will no longer be able to use the slow-motion controls and will need to use the motor control to move manually.
The kit itself was ok. All parts present, but there wasn't a parts list so, I didn't know this until completing the install. The so called installation instructions were quite frankly a joke as they skipped all relevent details about which parts fitted where. I just had to figure it out myself. Supplied screws for the main body housing proved to be too short.
I purchased this for an old Vixen Super Polaris mount. I fully expected to have to modify this somewhat to fit this older mount but that was not the case. My mount has the 4 setscrew style to mount the Dec and ra motors. All I needed to do was make a small plate that screwed to the bottom of the upgrade motors. The plate is then held with the 4 setscrews. I have not had weather to test it yet but everything seems as it should work as expected. Will update once I test it.
