So where do you live? and where do you want to use it?
You have the instructions? If not I suggest you go to the Orion site and download the manual that come with that scope. If you can read it once from front to back, I will then answer your question.

That is NOT an Atlas EQ-G as your question indicates -- this is an atlas eq-g-

This is a 60mm refractor style telescope imported from China. No one will have a manual for that scope. Try to locate a local Astronomy club and the members will help you assemble it.

Electronics - Atas EQ-G - connection is lost when guiding program begins calibration. Tracking and mount control lock up requiring restart of mount. Thanks


Have you upgraded the motor control firmware and the hand controller firmware to the latest version? If not see this web site which contains instructions for updating the firmware.

This could also be caused by a USB-Serial adapter cable. Try another brand. The one sold by www.scopestuff.com works --- along with a Keyspan brand Serial-USB adapter.

I am looking for a telescope and I saw the JASON MERCURY 420 telescope on craigs list. I have never owned a telescope, I am a ameture photographer and I watch every science show on tv. I am not a 8 year...


Do NOT buy that telescope.

Second, to take long exposure (several minute) astro-photos you must use a GEM mount like one of these:

http://www.telescope.com/control/accessories/mounts-and-tripods/orion-atlas-eq-g-computerized-goto-telescope-mount

Then you need to decide on the scope to use. Something like this would work:

http://www.telescope.com/control/product/~product_id=07338

or this:

http://www.astronomics.com/main/product.asp/catalog_name/astronomics/category_name/U5QNWB3RKWWL8N3EL99F9DX9A0/product_id/AT6RC

Additionally you will need some accessories to mount the camera onto the back of the telescope, and you will need to learn how to polar align the mount so it will accurately track the sky.

Could i convert my c8 to a go to computer and what would be involved


No, sorry the old C8 cannot be converted.

You might consider selling the C8 and upgrading to a more recent goto scope, OR deforking the tube, and mounting it on a GOTO mount like the alt az Ioptron Pro, or an EQ mount like this one:

http://www.telescope.com/control/accessories/mounts-and-tripods/orion-atlas-eq-g-computerized-goto-telescope-mount

here is the Ioptron:

Atlas Goto kit


Did you call Orion customer service ??? I just do not believe they would discontinue this since they still sell the non goto mount, and the goto mount.

It is still listed here---

RA will not track on Orion Atlas mount


Are you sure it's not actually working (tracking)-- can you hear the motor running?

I would contact Orion and make sure you have a manual for the hand-controller-- it may have a setting that turns tracking on or off.
