Manufacturer's product description:

Motor drive suitable for the following telescopes :

  • Omegon 150/750 EQ-3 Teleskop
  • Omegon 76/900 EQ-2 Teleskop
  • Zoomion Gravity 150 EQ

Omegon EQ-3 motor drive - the motor drive for your Omegon EQ-3 telescope

It is clear starry night. An object is in the field of view - perhaps the planet Jupiter - you note how the planet slowly moves in the field of view. You continually have to use the manual slow motion controls of your telescope to get the object back into the centre of the field of view.

But this is also possible automatically

Use the simple method of employing a tracking motor with your Omegon EQ3 mount. This will save you having to constantly adjust the telescope by hand. Once attached, you will then be able to concentrate much better on your observing.

The motor relieves you of this irksome burden and will track your telescope in synchronisation with the movement of the stars from now on.

The object you are observing will remain permanently in the field of view when the motor is operating!

Even more features

You also receive a handbox for controlling your telescope with the Omegon EQ-3 motor drive. Four large keys provide 8x and 2x tracking speeds and for temporarily stopping tracking. This means you can also follow objects at higher speeds and keep them positioned in the field of view.

There is also an ON/OFF switch and a switch for selecting which hemisphere you are on. This means that the Omegon RA tracking motor can be used anywhere in the whole world. The handbox is ergonomically designed so that it is easy and safe to use even when wearing gloves.

The advantages in a nutshell:

  • RA axis motor for automatic tracking
  • drives the main axis of the telescope
  • well suited to visual observing
  • comfortable to use: manual adjustment is no longer necessary
  • straightforward assembly, only taking a few minutes
  • handbox for 2X and 8X tracking speeds
  • switch for northern and southern hemispheres

It's a clear starry night. The object is located in the field of view, the planet Jupiter perhaps. You watch how the planet rapidly moves out of the field of view. The manual slow motion controls of your telescope allow you get the object back into the field of view...

This is also possible automatically

Take the easy way and use the tracking motor for your Omegon mount. It saves you constantly having to adjust the position of the telescope by hand. Simply connect it up and you can concentrate on observing.

The motor now does all the work, and from now on will move your telescope at exactly sidereal speed. The object remains permanently in the field of view, as long as the motor is running!

Yet more features

Along with the Skywatcher motor, you will also get a hand box for controlling your telescope. Four large buttons are used for 8X and 2X sidereal speeds, and there is also a pause button. This enables you to move an object into position in the field of view at a higher speed.

In addition to the ON/OFF switch, there is a switch for selecting which hemisphere you are located in. This means the Omegon RA tracking motor will work anywhere in the world. The hand box is easy to hold and operate, so you are always in control even with gloves on.

The advantages in a nutshell:

  • RA axis motor for automatic tracking
  • powers the main axis of the telescope
  • suitable for visual observing
  • easy operation - manual tracking no longer necessary
  • easy installation which takes only a few minutes
  • hand box for 2X and 8X speeds
  • switch for Northern and Southern hemispheres
  • battery compartment, with cable, for six D batteries
