Pulleys, ratios, EQ5 (CG5) just to be sure
« on: June 12, 2019, 16:47:28 »


I've now got all the parts to assemble my AstroEQ board.

I have a brand new manual Meade LX70 as the intended mount to GT.

From reading here, the worm gear ratio is 144:1, but that's something for the config file.

I am awaiting 2x 3M30 and 2x 3M15 pulleys, 10mm width.

Also awaiting 2x 3M 10mm width 111mm length belts.

If I read the other thread correctly, this is a simple 2:1 ratio. But someone else used 40:20 for the same ratio. Does it matter? ***edit 40:20? Must have read that wrong as that's still 2:1***

And the 111mm belt - does the length matter much with it? ***edit length matters because the motors are non-adjustable. 111mm is too short***
