Losmandy Gemini 2 GoTo System Upgrade

  • Upgrade your Gemini 1 to the Gemini 2 to take advantage of the latest GoTo System from Losmandy,
  • Since you already have the servo motors installed on your GM-8, G-11, Titan, or G9 mount, this upgrade is relatively easy.

The CPU on the Gemini 2 System uses a mounted PC board as its base. This is a proven set up and is one of the most reliable in the field today. The main board has auto-guider and accessory ports, for full remote control (via the web) of the system from a computer from anywhere in the world. The Gemini 2 uses a Meade LX200 inspired command set. Clock and location information can be updated through a Losmandy GPS accessory that is sold separately.
