Hello, I currently own a Celestron CI 700 and would like to upgrade it to a Meade Autostar GoTo. I know there are people out there that have made this modification. I have a Meade LXD75 mount but I do not want to cannibalize. Meade uses 12 volt motors with optical encoders. I would like to use after marker motors with encoders. does anyone know what type of motor I should use. I know that there is a posting on this forum about this mod but I have not been able to reach him. He uses a motor with a gear reduction of 51 to 1. and made modifications to the electronics.
