This is a complete Go To system comprised of a Sky Probe 1000 telescope motor driver, two high torque high speed stepper motors, remote control hand paddle, NEC color laptop computer, SBIG relay adapter box (for using an SBIG CCD camera to autoguide), all cables, software, and manuals.
I have never needed the CCD to guide with because this system guides very accuratly without it, but if you want to do long exposure and haven't polar aligned very well, then the CCD option is handy.
The computer is loaded with the following software;
The Sky version 2.0
Sky Pro version 2.0
Sky Probe version's 5.10, 5.2, and 5.21
DOS and Windows 3.1
Included are all software manuals except DOS and Windows
This will fit either the Losmandy G-11 or the G-8 mount. All instructions for both mounts are included. Basically you just remove the Losmandy digital drive board and the small Losmandy motors, then mount the new larger (more accurate) stepper motors, connect the cables and go. All hardware is included.
The computer comes in a nice padded case that holds all the manuals (and a few other goodies). The battery for the computer no longer will hold a charge so you can either replace it or just use the 110volt adapter. Other than the computer battery, everything is in like new condition.
I'm asking $1100 shipping included in the continental USA. If you have any qusetions or would like closer photos of any part of this system, please write and ask.
