Two questions about TDM.
1) How does it deal with backlash in a less precise mount such as the EXOS2.   Being as it is an encoder, if the RA needs to reverse directions, does it reverse to a known absolute position to bypass backlash?

2) is the TDM adapter for the LX75 compatible with the ExoS2-GT?
