Starlock and different mount

I don't know if this has been asked before but will the Meade Starlock system work with any other mount than the one it comes with. I have searched the site but can't find an answer.

Can the starlock system be purchased seperately and be used on a losmandy mount?

Thanks

Frank

Gday Frank

No one knows yet, but i doubt it.
Knowing how the Meades currently work
and seeing how the prototype was originally
plugged into Meades std serial port,
i am betting Meade have just added
some new serial commands to the firmware
that the mount can use to "talk" to the Starlock.
Ie scope slews to point as per normal,
Sends command to Starlock to acquire the star
Starlock sends back guide commands .
If its simple enough, it may be transportable
but only time will tell.

Andrew
