Celestron RA Motor Drive for AstroMaster or PowerSeeker EQ Mounts
Celestron Motor Drive for AstroMaster or PowerSeeker EQ Mount
Add this small, easy-to-install motor drive to your Celestron AstroMaster or PowerSeeker equatorial mount and your telescope will automatically track the stars as they move from east to west through the sky. The Celestron 93514 Motor Drive will also work with any set-up that uses a Celestron CG-2 or CG-3 equatorial mount. When the telescope mount is properly polar aligned and the RA drive is attached and running, you will only be required to make occasional adjustments in declination (north/south movements) to keep an object in the eyepiece for long periods of time.
The Celestron single-axis motor drive runs on a 9V battery, so there are no cords to get in the way. The drive can be used in either the Northern or Southern Hemisphere. To change hemispheres (reverse the motor’s direction), simply flip the North/South (N/S) switch on the face of the motor drive. It is also simple to change the speed of the motor. A knob is located just under the power indicator, and can be turned in either direction to slow down or speed up the motor. Since the Sun, Moon, planets, and deep-space objects move through the sky at different speeds, this gives you the ability to match the motor’s speed to the particular type of object you are observing.
