Hi,

Can I expect the exact all same features to be available for the AP1100GTO as the SB mount such as ME II if I buy TheSkyX Professional and use it for the AP mount?
In other words, is there any feature that is only available for the pure SB mounts against the AP although they say the AP mount is natively supported.

I have the AP mount being used in the field a few years with the keypad operation, and I am now going to build an observatory for remote use.
I am very interested in the TheSkyX Professional and  I would be able to save $$ if I could use the AP mount.
Thank you,

While TheSkyX has exceptional control for telescope mounts, the Paramount mount has many exclusive features that are not available on other mounts. So, there's no way to get the "exact same features" found in a Paramount in any other mount.

Here are a few features:

  • Configurable Flip Hour Angle
  • Reliable satellite tracking
  • Advanced control system settings (including PEC, tracking rates).
  • ProTrack-assisted tracking
  • Software-based tracking and slew limits

ProTrack-assisted tracking

This alone is worth the upgrade IMHO ;-)
