ID the type of Losmandy Motor you have by it's Fins.


This is what the current version of the High Torque motor looks like.
This motor is reported to have higher torque than any previous motor.
The part number is SVM-HT and can be ordered from here Current price is $220.00USA.
This motor is 2.810" (71.37mm) long with a shaft diameter of 0.1250" (3.18MM). Also notice that this motor is larger in diameter that the Maxon motor was. That is the reason that the fins only come down about 50% of the motor (5 fins total). The mounting disk on all three motors are designed to fit the Gemini Servo Gearbox. These motors do not include the Gemini Servo Gearbox, so if you need that it must be ordered separately. See image here. Also make sure you ask for the mounting screws, as the ones for previous motors will not work in this motor, they are too long.
