Equatorial drives and worm wheel was created by derek0207

These have been sitting in a drawer in a workshop for the last 10 years.

The drives were made by AWR technology in 1993 and the worm & wheel bought from beacon hill telescopes the same year. These were used in a permanent german mount in an observatory from 1993 to about 2003.
Still in working order. I tested yesterday. 12v powered.
The hand control has an rs232 outlet which is supposed to work with an auto-guider although I never used that feature.
The worm is stainless steel and the wheel is aluminium.

€100 euro for the lot.
