Slewing speed

by Photo-Web » Tue Jan 21, 2014 5:42 pm

Hello,

Original slewing speed of Merlin/Orion panohead is 1 rotation / 24 hours (Speed 1) (Hand Control documentation).
But with a Panogear+Hand Control, the lower speed is 1 rotation / 5'.
How can I select a slewing speed of 1 rotation/24 hours ?

Thanks

Have a look in the next manual page 8:
http://www.papymerlin.com/app/download/1719271916/TeleTrack+9441+Rev+C.pdf?t=1245361296

You will find :
Making Directional Adjustments While Tracking
Your TeleTrack mount features tracking slew speeds which
allow you to make fine adjustments to the position of the
mount while tracking. These speeds are much slower than the
speeds when tracking is not activated.
With tracking activated:
• Press the “GUIDE” speed button to set the directional
buttons to slew the mount at 1x sidereal rate. The
“GUIDE” button will blink to indicate operation.
• Press the “SLOW” speed button to set the directional buttons
to slew the mount at 4x sidereal rate. The “SLOW”
button will blink to indicate operation.
• Press the “FAST” speed button to set the directional buttons
to slew the mount at 8x sidereal rate. The “FAST”
speed button will blink to indicate operation.


Have fun.

Claude
