Tele Vue SkyTour Encoder Kit for TeleVue Mounts
The Tele Vue Sky Tour encoder kit is designed for all current Televue mounts, including Telepod, Gibraltar, and Panoramic, but will also fit a variety of other mounts, including altitude-azimuth, German equatorial, fork mount, and equatorial table.
Just as your computer uses a sensor arrangement to know where the mouse is located, the SkyTour Encoder uses a sensor to understand what position in RA and Dec your telescope is located by use of an encoder placed on either axes - a form of electronic setting circles. This information is then fed back into the optional TeleVue SkyTour computer control and a whole new world opens up... one with an exclusive Lorenzin 2000+ database and an amazing amount of capabilities! Just remember, this is only the sensing unit which includes encoders, hardware, and wiring harness.
