Check to see if you can still get the encoders from Orion. Item 10315
for $179, encoders for the SkyQuest XT6,8,10. These fit so well on
the XT10 mount that you SHOULD get them if you can. They are usable
with any of the D.S.C. Boxes. My own suggestion would be to use them
with a box that is manufactured by Tangent. This box will require
you to "Level Me", as I explained in the article I posted. Tangent
D.S.C.'s are sold by many suppliers under their own names. Lumicon
Sky Vector, JMI NGC Max, Celestron Advanced Astro Master, and perhaps
others are all Tangent boxes. The key feature is that, after
alignment, they return a "Warp Factor" to you.
