The main creator of OnStep, Howard Dutton. Has chosen Gray Digital Arts as one of the authorized dealers of OnStep PCBs. We will be able to sell the open source GPL 3.0 licensed PCBs and his PCB designs that are non-commercial licensed PCBs.
My son will also be helping me as he is looking for some extra pocket money and I thought this would be a good learning experience for him.
Thanks for all of the support!

hello, I have an eq6 goto mount, unfortunately the motherboard burned out. I would like to know if the onstep kit drivers can handle the original skywatcher stepper motors.
I only have experience with stepper motors and OnStep. Last i knew DC servo motors (i assume this i what the eq6 uses) are possible with OnStep, but it is not well documented or tested. I would only try this if you are very experienced with electronics of these types.
There are probably examples of the EQ6 being converted to stepper motors on the showcase page.
