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

Doesn't the 1600 have more load capacity than the1200?

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-----
