PoorMan's LX-200

I started out with a ETX-90RA non computerized scope, and I converted it to a fully computerized go-to scope by attaching it to a DS-70EC mount. I bought the ETX-90RA new for $189.00 and I bought the DS-70EC and 495 Autostar for $200. I converted the 495 Autostar to the 497 Autostar just by upgrading the software. I removed the scope from the DS-70EC and built an aluminum shelf bracket for the ETX-90RA scope. The new computerized mount works like a champ now. It was a lot cheaper doing the conversion than it would be to just buy a ETX-90EC plus the Autostar plus a tripod.
