Can I autoguide with my Advanced Series GT mount?

The Advanced Series GT mounts have an autoguider port on the RA motor housing. This port will directly interface with any of the SBIG (Santa Barbara Instrument Group) type autoguiders on the market. 

It can also be used with a momentary-contact type manual hand control to manually guide the scope during long-exposure astrophotography. It should never be used with the regular hand control.
