Extreme Resolution Encoders - Oh yeah, baby!

I've just put through its paces these new extreme res encoders on my scopes. My big dob has 311,296 step encoder on the az axis and 650,500 step encoder on the alt. I then went nuts finding object after object from one side of the sky to the other and landing each comfortably inside an 8' true field of view eyepiece.

Oh, and I didn't need to change the way/speed at which I moved my scope.

Awesome Serge! Truly AWESOME!

Alex.
