Mike,�������� You do realize that you will be trading some heavierload capacity of the 1200, for all the nice new features in the 1600?I decided to buy a used 1200, just for that extra horsepower, and saving apile of money as our dollar here, hit the slopes. Still love my AP-1200, andjust could not part with my original AP-900. That would be as hard as decidingwhich child to send to a foster home :-)�������� Don.t worry about the AP-1600 . seems to be fullycompatible with the earlier series, with even more fun stuff to boot !��Joe

Thanks...will the handpad for my 1200 work as a plug-n-play with a 1600? Can I swap them back and forth with no problems or resetting things?

Yes, you can add encoders yourself later if you wish.

Contemplating upgrading to a 1600 from a 1200, a few questions:







The 1600 will be a direct bolt into an existing 1200 permanent pier?







The 1600 uses the same counterweights as the 1200?







The same plate (Dove16 I think) will fit on the 1600?







My existing handpad for the 1200 will work for the 1600...is this a direct swap (plug-n-go)?







My current ASCOM V2 driver will work?







The new 1600s have the latest chips? I upgraded the 1200 to the Q chip I think it is, it remembers its position well, unlike the chip it replaced.







I can upgrade to absolute encoders and CP4 electronics down the road?







The 1600 will hold a Planewave 20?

Yes, of course. It works just like any planetarium program which can be swapped back and forth with no problems and without resetting anything.��The initialization for all our mounts is the same. The objects libraries are also.��Rolando����-----Original Message-----
