synscan alt-az to eq conversion in driver? #42280
for folks like yours truly, who can afford the cheap & dirty alt-az mounts but want to drive them like an eq ( with a wedge, for instance).
1) where can i find the protocol spec SynScan handset uses for driving the mount?
2) I've read on forums that handset interrogates drive firmware to see if it is capable of functioning in eq mode, can this be faked? will it hurt anything?
3) how does 'proper' eq mode differ from setting location to lat 90 and using a wedge?
