    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.

    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.

    The weakest link in the optical chain is the large nut located directly behind the eyepiece/ camera. - Gabrielle
