NEWS! April 2011 - 2 New Mount Control Kits

These 2 new kits rid the electronics pier of the remaining  troublesome "phone plugs".

      

           Kit # 1 - Hand Controller / AUX1 / AUX2                                   Kit # 2 - PC Port / Guide Port / Power

The original "phone plugs" cannot tolerate the environment extremes they are subjected to. Namely; heavy dew, frost, dirt, tree sap (airborne), and every other environment conditions that Mother Nature throws our way.

These kits are the permanent cure for mount failures caused by weak or broken contact between the control devices and the mount. We've all seen the dreaded "Error Codes 16/17" and wasted far too many hours of precious clear, dark skies recovering mount failure caused by the inferior factory "phone plugs".

NEW - Mount Control Kit Installation Service Available

These kits require some minor soldering! These new kits are easy to install for someone who has used a soldering iron at least once in their lifetime. But, if you wish, a installation service is available. See "Installation Service" for more details. The solding work is very minor. Consult the Installation Guides for more details.

 Kit # 1 - Hand Controller / AUX1 / AUX2 (GPS)

This kit eliminates the factory original "phone plugs" with robust "military style" circular plugs and threaded metal locking rings. The kit also replaces the original coiled cord (they are WAY too short) with an ample 8' flat cord. A flat cord allows you to use the entire length of the cord without putting strain on the plugs and handset cord grommet.
