    Default EXOS-2 Goto slewing



    I shot a short video of my new EXOS-2 slewing.

    The video starts with the mount in Polar home position. I then command the mount to go to the Sun. The controller displays the obligatory "Do not point at the sun" warning. Press enter and off it goes.
    Next I slew manually with the arrow keys with the speed set on 9.
    At the end I command it to return to the park position.

    Default Re: EXOS-2 Goto slewing

    Very nie, it is interesting the way it sounds like it is stepping up the power while initially slewing. Not like the Celestron which is full speed ahead. Nice looking mount and scope.
    Scopes: Antares Elite (Vixen Spec) 105mm f/15 (AIM-9), Modified SLT 102mm f/6.5 (Abe Normal), 2 Modified 150mm f/8 doublet (Frankencannon & Beefractor), Stellarvue NHNG DLX 80mm f/6.9, Vixen ED 115S f/7.7 (Raquel), Home made 150mm f/5 Newt
    Mounts: Manfrotto 055 Pro/ 128RC, Modified SLT, EQ-2, EQ-5, Tuned CG-5 w/ Argo Navis, Tuned ASGT, SXP w/ SB10 Binoculars: Vixen Ascot 10x50, Celestron Skymaster 15x70

    Eyepieces: An embarrassing amount of highly polished and coated glass mostly under 50°
