One thought on “Links

  1. Dave:
    Started your DSC project in 2004, but just now getting back to installing it on my C8 fork mount.
    I tried your link:
    “Grant Robertson’s fork mounted Celestron C8 Installation–Grant shows pictures and drawings of how he mounted encoders on a Celestron C8 with a fork mount.”

    The link no longer works. Any chance anyone saved his installation to another site?
