How to use the Celestron "Merlin" Pan / Tilt Head with the Dynamic Perception Stage Zero Dolly

Before beginning, make sure to upgrade your MX2 controller

This was designed to be an in-depth tutorial on how-to connect and use the Celestron Sky-Watcher Motorized Pan & Tilt head (aka. Merlin Head) with the Dynamic Perception Stage Zero Dolly and MX2 Controller.

The tutorial takes you step-by-step through the hardware connections and the steps you need to take to get the MX2 controller set up - all the way through to starting a motion time-lapse.

A big thank you goes out to all the folks that have posted information on the Timescapes.org forums as well as help from Dynamic Perception in getting the information that allowed me to put this tutorial together.

Mike Lanfor posted a video a while ago showing the Sky-Watcher and Dynamic Perception Dolly in action: vimeo.com/25802060
