Sky Commander (SC)  XP4 Computer w/ Flash Cable and Users Manual. The SC "sets"  the position of the telescope with the use of two optical encoders.  Simply initialize the SC by pointing the telescope at two alignment stars.  It's as simple as that. Just select the "catalog", press enter and push the telescope until the SC "zeros out its reading".   The SC will work with any of the common telescope mountings -- Dobsonian, German equatorial or Fork. Yes, it works with equatorial platforms too.
