  Looking for ideas on building a less expensive "Goto" telescope mount ?  Here is some information on using  Meade's
DS (digital series) electronic motors along with the 497 Autostar controller to power  homemade telescope mounts. Meade's Autostar
 & the DS motors can be used to power almost any gearing arrangement without the need of a laptop computer and
still have many features found only on the more expensive goto telescope mounts.
