Maximum Microstep Ratei | 3D Printed Planetary Gear based Mounts


Thank you so much for such detailed explanation. Actually I've bought the motors and my telescope is capable of viewing solar system objects only.

My only worry was system not being able to handle motors with gear reduction.

Thank you so much again, this really helps and you shared the photo of your build!

How much telescope are you trying to drive?  Do you have a Coronado PST or or similar Lunt solar scope?

For tracking the sun you should be fine.

Good luck.
