Celestron Motor Drive for AstroMaster and Powerseeker Review
The Celestron Motor Drive for AstroMaster and Powerseeker telescopes is an inexpensive motor drive that will automatically track celestial objects in the night sky when connected to the equatorial mount on AstroMaster and Powerseeker telescopes. This telescope motor drive is a single axis motor that will fit on the CG-2 and CG-3 EQ mounts.
When attached to the CG-2 or CG-3 equatorial mount, the single axis drive on this motor will track objects in right ascension as they move across the sky. With the EQ mount properly aligned, only minor adjustments in declination will be necessary over time to keep objects in view. The motor drive is variable speed and can be configured for either northern or southern hemispehere via a reverse switch.
The speed regulator on this motor drive allows you to adjust tracking speed via a small dial. This is useful when tracking objects that don't necessarily follow the same path across the sky as stars and planets, such as the moon or sun. Turn the speed regulator knob clockwise to increase tracking speed, and counterclockwise to decrease tracking speed. This motor drive is powered by a single 9v battery (included), which should provide up to 40 hours of operation, depending on ambient temperature and motor speed.
