Astrobdlbug Posted April 27, 2021 Share Posted April 27, 2021 I am still flip flopping about pressing the buy button for a CEM26 Can anyone help me answer a few more questions about these mounts I have heard that CEM mounts are extremely sensitive to balance - so if I am planning to use as a travelling / star camp option would it be a mount that requires too much fine tuning to balance and dial it in for a remote site imaging session ? Would it be better to get the GEM28 instead as that would possibly be less sensitive to load balance issues ? Second - I use Raspberry Pi running Astroberry with INDI/EKOS/KSTARS - at the moment I use a FTDI EQDIR USB cable for my Sky-Watcher AZ,-ALT EQ6 GT mount that goes directly into the mount from a Pi USB socket and I do not need to connect via the handset. I am reading that this setup does not work with iOptron mounts and any USB conneection needs to go via the handset controller - I only infer that as I cant find anyone explicitly stating thats the way to connect this mount to a computer. Could anyone who is using this mount with ASIAir or Stellarmate or Pi running Astroberry let me know how they connect the mount to the Pi please ? thanks for anyone help/advice on this , Bryan Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
