Magellan II question

Hi, I recently acquired a Meade Magellan II hand controller. No cables, no user manual, no encoders etc. Can this be used with any scope with encoders? Or does it only hook up into the control panel of a Meade scope? Thanks for any input offered. Gerry

The Magellan I could be used with any encoders. The II? Prob'ly not. For a definitive answer, you might post this question on the Yahoogroup Meade-Uncensored.
