Motor on the dome

Forums Telescopes Biggest Scope For A Dome Motor on the dome

I agree with Jeremy.  I had considered exactly the same proposed setup as yourself, but concluded i wouldn’t fit in the dome with the scope 😉     However i suggest that  a motorised dome rotation would overcome the narrow slit difficultly. It works very well on my 2.7m Pulsar.  I align the aperture on the OTA, and select sidereal rate on the control box. The azimuth drive system can be retro fitted.
