A friend of mine has an older 1200 mount mid 90s or so, Ithink it is the sqmd or qmd (it is NOT GTO, I think there were only of fewconfigured this way)���would it be possible to upgrade this mount to thelatest version of the 1200GTO (which I know is no longer produced)?�� Wouldthe latest polar scopes work on this mount? ��Thanks��� �� �� ��Mike J.

Mike, ��It is not possible to upgrade a 1200QMD to a 1200GTO.���� However, the polar scope will work in all but the very earliest 1200 mounts.�� It would be best to send me a photo ofthe back of the 1200 RA axis before purchasing the polar scope.�� ��Regards, ��George ��George WhitneyAstro-Physics, Inc.Phone:�� 815-282-1513Email:�� george@...
