Orion Atlas Pro compatibility

Is Sat Tracker compatible with the Orion Atlas Pro mount?

Does it work in Alt-Az mode? That would help eliminate the "meridian flip" an EQ mount has to do.

Barry,

You can find the answer to this question by doing a search in the Yahoo Group archived messages for those times when I am away on travel and cannot get to answer these type of questions quickly.

Doing a search for Orion Atlas there are a series of messages starting at message 2217 referencing Orion Atlas-G. Another series begins at message 2522 discussing the use of EQMOD and EQMODLX. There are detailed instructions on how to set that up in that message number 2522. See also messages 3673 and 5332 thru 5338.

John,

I found those messages. Thanks! I haven't yet bought the Atlas Pro; just collecting information at this time to determine if it's the right thing to do.
