Any recommendations for an autoguider for the Losmandy Gemini 1. I had bought a "stand alone" autoguider (no need for pc) but it fried
the computer in the Gemini 1 on my G-11.

Hi Jonathan,
I have used the Orion star shoot autoguider for years with my Gemini 1 on G-11 and Losmandy Titan mounts with no problems, even using an old windows XP laptop.

Check out www.coconinoastro.org for examples of my work.

Maybe you did not realize you needed the isolating relay box between that type of guider and your mount. If I am not mistaken the only old standalone guider that had the relays built in was the ST-4. All of the others requires the relay box (not sure about the Orion and Celestron guiders but since they work in 5v and not 12v they maybe they are OK).
