Thanks folks.

Afraid I am, probably NOT the sort of person who could competently grind a mirror, Ian. I recently refurbed a 10" dobsonian though and I've just come into the mirror set for a 6" scope.

That mount has steppers built in (HEQ5). There is a handset, but i sue it under computer control 9 times out of 10.

I retro fitted home made steppers and gearboxes to my smaller NEQ3-2.
