This Go-To drive system has to go. Now reduced to $1,200!!

Upgrade your Losmandy G-11, GM-8 or HGM-200 to Go-To with the Astrometric Instruments SkyWalker-Servo drive system by simply replacing your stepper motors with the SkyWalker-Servo drive modules. This is a very simple installation that anyone can perform.

Please see Astrometric Instruments' web site for a full description of the capabilities of this system. [A Google search will take you to their web site.] Capabilities include:
• Stand-alone or Windows95/98/ME-based operation
• High slew rate (ex. 6.5°/sec on Losmandy's G-11 telescope mount)
• Smooth and Precise tracking
• Versatile hand paddle control
• Accessory control (electric focuser, dew heaters, illuminated reticle, etc.)
• Low power 12V operation

This excellent Go-To system was purchased new by me in April 2002 and works extremely well. Mounted on a polar aligned Losmandy G-11, the system would place the desired object on the chip of a SBIG ST-7 CCD camera at a focal length of 1000 mm every time.

Forced sale due to arrival of larger capacity Go-To mount and sale of the Losmandy G-11 that the SkyWalker system was mounted on. The system includes servo motor modules, hand paddle, power cable, serial communications cable, and SkyGuide software.

Asking price is $1,200, save $695 off the $1,895 retail price. Will split shipping and insurance with buyer. Money order or cashier's check accepted for immediate shipping. Personal checks accepted but I will not ship unit until check clears.
