Excellent Product, Works Perfectly
25 September 2020  | 

I was a little unsure about buying this item, as the picture looked slightly different to what I wanted, but the specifications matched. It does indeed fit my Celestron Powerseeker EQ-1 Mount, and has been used twice, once to accuratly track the planets, and once to track the moon. On both occasions, it worked well. It can be a little bit fiddly to get it at the right speed, but following some adjustments it seemed to be working well, and during a 20s exposure, there were very little, if any, star trails. Very Pleased with this purchase, Would reccomend to others as an excellent budget motor drive.
