This system works very well and is far better and more accurate than any other EQ5 goto upgrade offering!!! We've tested the other systems and this is definitely the best. Took me 30 mins to set-up first time and after polar and 3-star alignment it worked beautifully first go! If you're not mechanically astute then you might prefer to have us fit the system for you.

See our YouTube link on the home page for an instructional video for fitting to Vixen Great Polaris mounts.
