You have to remove the counterweight shaft in order to put the encoder ring into the Dec axis. It would be easier if the mount was broken down, but it can be done while still together on the pier. Rolando  -----Original Message-----

I am planning on installing absolute encoders when the CP4becomes available for the 1600.  Curious as to installation...can the encodersbe installed with the mount functioning and an OTA on it or is it best toinstall with the mount "broken down" as it were?  Mike J.
