Meade Instrtuments 616000 Instruments Polaris Motor Drive for Polaris Telescopes only

  • Continuous RA tracking for telescope
  • Requires 9V battery, included
  • Simple attachment to telescope in under five minutes

Meade DC Motor Drive for Meade Polaris series Equatorial Telescopes. Adds continuous RA tracking to telescope, so operator does not need to manually operate RA slow motion control to keep objects in the eyepiece. For use with Meade Polaris German Equatorial Mount only. The Meade Polaris Electric RA Motor Drive attaches easily and directly to the Polaris EQ mount in under five minutes. With the motor drive attached and turned on, the telescope can move at the sidereal rate to track any celestial object and keep it centered in the telescopic field. With the variable speed adjustment, you can quickly and easily change the tracking speed to track the moon, planets, or sun (proper solar filtering required). The motor drive will keep the object in the field of view for 10 to 20 minutes before re-centering is required on a well polar aligned mount. Polar alignment required for use. Once installed, the RA motor drive may be left permanently attached to the telescope. This motor runs for approximately 40 hours off of a single 9v battery (included). The Polaris Electric RA Motor Drive is compatible with operation in either Northern or Southern hemispheres, and can be switched between the two simply by selecting the proper hemisphere on the N/S switch on the motor’s front panel. Product carries full one year factory .
