Galileo MDJR Telescope Motor Drive
- Galileo MD-JR Telescope Motor Drive keeps your telescope on target. If you have a Equatorial Reflector Telescope, then you have the ability to addimage a motor drive, equipping the scope with a motorized mount. Anyone who has ever looked up into the skies knows that everything is moving. But only those who have looked at the planets and stars know exactly how fast: too fast! Without a motor driven telescope you will be making adjustments all night long to keep objects in the eyepiece. But with a Galileo Motor Drive attached and a proper polar alignment, you simply need to get an object in your eyepiece and your Galileo motorized telescope will follow the object all night long, without ever making adjustments. Get the advantages of an equatorial mount - your Galileo Equatorial Telescope comes with all the necessary attachments and gearing to add the Galileo Motor Mount. Nothing extra is required to convert your 'scope into a motorized mount telescope! Watch for plans for, and ideas using, this motor to operate a "Barn Door" astro camera guider,
