Celestron Dual Axis Motor Drive Kit for
Celestron CG-4 Telescope Mount:
Add tracking and tracking correction
capabilities to any setup that uses a Celestron CG-4 equatorial mount (Omni XLT
mount for example). The right ascension motor drive allows the telescope to
track a star’s movement through the night sky, and the addition of a declination
motor gives you the ability to make adjustments in all four directions with the
included drive corrector hand controller.
Celestron Dual Axis Motor Drive
With this drive system mounted on a properly polar-aligned telescope, the user
can do visual observations or sketches without objects constantly drifting out
of the field if view. Astrophotography is also possible when a mount has
dual-axis drive with drive corrector capabilities.
The Celestron dual-axis motor drive system is powered by four D-cell batteries
in a self-contained battery pack. The drive can be used in either the Northern
or Southern Hemisphere. To change hemispheres (reverse the motor’s direction),
simply flip the "N/Off/S£ switch on the drive corrector hand controller.
The drive corrector hand controller can be used to move the telescope at
different speeds. This is achieved by choosing the desired speed on a switch
marked “2x/4x/8x.” Twice the sidereal rate, or 2x, is used for guiding on a star
when doing astrophotography. The 4x speed is used to centre objects in the
eyepiece. The 8x speed can be used for cantering objects in the finderscope as
well as the eyepiece.
This package includes an RA and Dec motor, clutch, mounting brackets and
hardware, drive corrector hand controller, and power pack.
