Post Which One to Buy?
Hey All -

About to pull the trigger on a motion control system....

So in my mind it's between these bad boyz:

http://shop.telescope-warehouse.com/pro ... ductId=119
http://www.adorama.com/MDDSM.html

Obviously the price tags aren't that far apart - and adorama sells it with the supposedly better controller. But the telescope-warehouse model comes with the custom L-bracket, right? Anybody know which has a sturrdier tripod?

Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

Many thanks,

Cody

Basically one has the 494 the other has the 497... Everything else is the same (afaik)

The 497 is nice for two reasons... 1. number pad for more convenient input 2. the ability to communicate via serial ( :oops: I do continue to work on the program as time permits... :oops: )

as far as I know they are the same... oh btw the best way to mount it to a good tripod is to locate a 3/8-24 to 3/8-16 thread converter (basically a short rod with both threads) and replace your 'excellent existing tripod' stud with that one.

Those prices are steep, you'd be better off finding one on craigslist or ebay without that crappy tripod, or ask the guy at telescope warehouse to sell you one for les without the tripod.
