The 1200 was not designed for encoders. These things are very new and were

not available 20 years ago when the 1200 was designed.

I received the AP newsletter and it offers prices forabsolute encoders for the 1600...are the user installed kits now available fororder?��Another question: to upgrade to the CP4 controller on the1600, does one need to upgrade the handpad to V 4.19 (which I never use butmaybe twice a year when collimating the telescope)?�� For me, 4.17 works justfine, I park through the GTOV2 ASCOM driver as well as run the system.��Thanks...��Mike J.

Mike,The encoder kits can be ordered now, but won���t be available to ship until the CP4 is also ready since it relies on the CP4. As Roland mentioned, the keypadupdate is not required. ��Clear Skies, ��Marj ChristenAstro-Physics, Inc11250 Forest Hills RdMachesney Park, IL 61115Phone: 815-282-1513Fax:
