Product description

Motor Clock Drive for EQ3-1 mount

A motor drive is an important accessory for equatorial mounts. It allows you to follow the movement of the objects on the sky automatically, without manual intervention. That way you can fully concentrate on observing instead of having to concentrate on manual tracking! The motor drive is particularly important if you plan to do astro imaging, where manual tracking won't do the job. Unlike simpler motors this model is a quartz-controlled clock drive, i.e. it will run at the precisely right speed regardless of the outside temperature or of the remaining voltage of your battery!

Telescopes known to be compatible with this motor drive:

  • Jupiter refractor from TS Optics
  • Starscope 1149 Newtonian from TS Optics
  • Megastar 1550 Newtonian from TS Optics

TS Optics is a brand of Teleskop-Service.
