AWR TECHNOLOGY - 2006www.awrtech.co.uk
Drive systems to turn virtually any equatorial mount into 'GOTO' operation. Our Intelligent Drive System (Intelligent Handset and a Microstepping Drivebox) with motors and brackets have been fitted to many telescopes with up to 36 inch diameter mirrors. Standard kit for EQ5, HEQ5, EQ6, ALTER D6 for the user to fit (from £750). A whole host of extra's so you can buy just the right amount of equipment for your situation. The Microstepping Drivebox can operate a telescope with a Simple Handset for a low cost entry to the product range (from £450). Adding the IH at a later date makes it GOTO.
Users include mounts of EQ5, EQ6, Alter D6, Beacon Hill products - PICTURE, Orion Optics, Losmandy, Astro-Physics, Fullerscopes & home made with worm, chain, gears or friction drives. Contact Alan Buckman at AWR Techgnology for advice on the right system for you. On permanently mounted telescope systems users are reporting GOTO accuracy approaching 30 arc seconds, after the calibrations and the mount have been tweaked.
Intelligent Handset DATABASE (14000 objects) is fitted to standard kits only.
A device for diagnosing problems with EITHER your Autoguider input on your telescope OR checking the functions of your Autoguider oputput from your CCD Camera or Computer. DUAL PURPOSE UNIT. Save hours on finding out why your systems are not talking and put them right quickly! Comes with LEDs telling you the state of the 6 lines in the RJ12 lead, jumpers to assign levels or direction movements and INSTRUCTIONS.
There are many possibilities for the interface not to work including pinout not as expected and active signals of the wrong polarity. This unit will find ALL of these conditions.
