Older Orion Sky view pro mount question


Recommended Posts

The mount I have must have been made in the 90s because it only has the right ascension drive.  Problem is there's no control box and Orion won't sell you one. I have some DC gear motors in the shed that might work with some kind of speed controller or they might have one on fleabay.  It would be helpful to know what revolution per hour the motor should be.

Does anyone know ? 🤔 Thank you ....... Almost forgot. Those brass gears on the side are the same size, but there must be a worm and gear that's out of sight.
