I've just got hold of a German-made clockwork drive called a "PURUS ASTROMECHANIK" - with no instructions! Does anybody out there have hands-on experience with one of these? I think I can figure out the aiming (much like a standard equatorial mount) but what I need to know is - does it wind up with a key? How long will it run on a winding, how do you start and stop it, etc.
Any info would be more than I have now.
