Sky-Watcher’s new dual-axis motor drive with enhanced hand controller is essential for long-exposure astrophotography and a useful accessory for visual astronomy.
It precisely controls the mount's tracking speed to compensate for Earth's rotation during long exposures.
The new enhanced handset has an ST4 interface for an Auto-Guider, such as Sky-Watcher’s own Synguider, and features SOLAR, LUNAR and SIDEREAL tracking rates plus selectable adjustment rates of 0.5x, 2x and 16x.
The hand controller also has a convenient facility to invert the direction of the UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT buttons so the directions on the handset can match those you see through the telescope.
Designed for use in northern and southern hemispheres.
The DC motor drive runs on 4 "D" cell batteries (not included).
Includes motors for both R.A. and DEC axes, motor cables, enhanced hand controller and battery pack.
Note: Once fitted you will no longer be able to use the slow-motion controls and will need to use the motor control to move manually.
