Skywatcher AZ Motor Mod

Post by skyhawk » Sun May 05, 2019 10:29 am

As I am no way an engineer or electrical person I hope you may help.

The AZ Skywatcher mount in the image has knobs that come off, I am considering placing something similar to this on each one

But the skywatcher is not powerful enough, I don't want to pay hundreds, any ideas, many thanks

Just for info, if I ever come over as "blunt" or upset it is not intentional, I am AUTISTIC, I have Aspergers, and ADHD, Autism, so my apologies if I ever sound, unintentionally confrontational. Thank you
