I bought my Nexus DSC from Serge in Feb 17.
My 12" Lightbridge was the "development model" for the "Lightbridge kit"

The encoders are just the start, AZ 311296 steps, Alt 952000 steps.
Serge had to design and then produce all the hardware to fit my scope.

With my personal setup of control box (dew heaters & fan), I couldn't have the post with the dsc on the side of the mount (toward the rear)
I had to mount it on the side (front end)

Whilst this worked out, ok. I did tend to lean into it, especially with a lot of clothes on for winter.
I have now moved it to the upper tube assembly (with mount and cable relocations), this is infinitely better to read and use.
