Brand new C11 OTA : WARNING !

Posted By Frederic Caron

To anyone who want to buy a brand new C11 OTA to put it in a former Ultima fork mount : THAT'S DOESN'T FIT ANYMORE. Celestron doesn't still have the the 2 big screws needed to fix the OTA on the older fork mount. Only the 2 screws for the new Nexstar brackets are available. I've just received my brand new C11 OTA and facing the situation.

Which company has produced these motors ?

Posted By Frederic Caron

I'm looking to replace my Ultima 11 RA motor. I've asked Celestron. What a joke than the Celestron's tech support ! They are unable to tell me which company has supplied these motor and unable to give me some specs of the motor.

I'm asking people to know more about my RA motor. If i don't know the accurate specs of the motor / gear box, i can't order a replacement motor from a supplier ( may be different than the former Celestron's supplier ).

Thanks for your help
