Re: Shipping an AP1100


Thank you Roland.


During transport, should the worm be coupled to the worm wheel or should it be off? Does it matter? 


Kind Regards,

The two axes come separate. When you get them, the Dec axis attaches directly to the Ra with a dovetail system. It is straight forward and easy to do.

Subject: [ap-gto] Shipping an AP1100


I would like to have some details about the best way to package an AP1100 and would like to know how Astro-Physics ships it.


Does it originally come in one or more boxes? What are their dimensions and how heavy are they?


If in one box, does it come in one piece with RA and DEC bolted together?


Should the worm be coupled to the gear? Does it matter? 


Is the hand controller in the same box?


Kind regards
