I'm not sure that you can motorise that dish, as they appear to be a little flimsy for anything other than static mount.

The satellite super store do a mod for the channel master mount to fit the 1.6m fortec star, so I cant see why it couldnt be done for the 1.8. They are asking 250 quid tho.

Bet you could , make your own adaptor.
