- Orion Atlas Pro
- hand controller
Orion Atlas Pro eq/Az. This really make my observation and astrophotography section much easier. Just plugged in the control slot and the first time it took only few seconds to acquires the data including: date , time ,and gps coordinates position, so I don't need to start looking location and date time on my phone to add then with the hand controller anymore. I love this device and 100% recommended.
No need of set it up. Just connecting worked!
Skywatcher AZ-EQ5. It works! No more manual data entry.
I first tried the GPS module on my SkyWtcher EQ6 in my shed on a rainy night. As soon as I turned on the mount, it indicated that a GPS module was connected. I wanted to time how long it took to get a GPS fix but before I could look at my watch, it had a fix. My AVX mount takes several minutes and my iOptron CEM 25 takes considerably longer. This GPS module had a fix within seconds. I don't like the idea of having the GPS module plugged into the hand controller but this is an issue with the mount, not the GPS. I bought my EQ6 at NEAF last year, I did not check the firmware revision and it did not need to be updated to work with this GPS. Great device at a great price.
The Star GPS unit is an excellent accessory for my Skywatcher EQ6R telescope mount. Thus product arrives with an easy to use set up and instruction sheet and works perfectly on my mount providing date, time, and location as advertised.
It worked with my Synscan EQ6. Before purchace you should check the hand control firmware is higher than version 3.10. Highly recommended!
