On cloudy nights astronomers
sleep still do some astronomy, or just something, in order to be doing something. What I did last night: take out my old EQ3 mount — motorized but no goto and no autoguider port — and think about it a bit. After some thinking and measuring, I added a standard ST4 autoguider port to it. While I know there are others who have done so before me, I remember reading some articles a few years back, for this project I didn’t bother to google that/those articles again. Cause it’s not rocket science.
And cause I already have my soapbox driving the HEQ5. Actually I have two soapboxes, so let’s rock.
So I opened the black box the hand controller literally is, to see what’s under the hood.
