Orion HDX110 mount w/SGP


An imaging buddy in my dark sky site operation is looking to upgrade his mount and he is thinking about the Orion HDX110. I have always thought this mount looked well made but I have no experience with it. So, I was wondering if there are any SGP users using this mount? If so, does it have an ASCOM interface or will it require EQMOD and how well does it work overall with tasks like meridian flips, centering, etc.



I can’t speak for that mount but I can speak for EQMOD. SGP handles the flip not the mount/EQMOD. In EQMOD I have flip and limits turned off but in SGP I have flip turned on with my preferred minutes past the meridian. Some people might prefer to keep limits and flip turned on in EQMOD as a safeguard but it is not needed with my specific setup. Hope that helps.
