Conversion of old pre GOTO CG5 to allow autoguider interface with old handpaddle

Any one here done this kind of conversion to their older preGOTO GEM ?


I am considering getting AWR in the UK to do the conversion to my old (NON-GOTO) CG5 so I can set it up as an autoguided camera platform, manual guiding it is tedious. Involve adding some circuitry to the old handpaddle and adding an appropriate socket.

I am not interested in adding GOTO to the old CG5 , just an autoguider interface compatible with the Orion Autoguider, this will give this old work horse a new lease of life at minimum cost.
