    Motor Drive for Celestron AstroMaster or PowerSeeker EQ series telescopes.  Allow for automatic tracking of objects on your AstroMaster EQ Mount.  No more turning knobs, let the motor drive track objects for you! 

    Without a motor drive the AstroMaster telescope tracks objects in the sky manually.  For example, if you had Saturn or Jupiter in your eyepiece, the object would only stay in your field-of-view at high magnifications for a few seconds.  To track objects manually, you need to turn the knobs on the EQ mount to keep the object in your view.  Each time you turn the knob, the image shake makes viewing the object impossible, making you wait for the telescope to stabilize again.

    A motor drive eliminates the need for manually tracking objects.  Once your object is located, simply turn on the motor drive and adjust the speed to match the objects tracking speed.  The motor drive runs for up to 40 hours on one included 9 volt battery.

    • Motor Drive allows for tracking objects in the sky
    • No more turning knobs to follow objects
    • Eliminates the image shake from manual movements
    • Installs quickly and easily

    Rated 4 out of 5★ by It does the job This motor installs easily and appears easy to use as well. I just received it and haven't had a chance to use it due to weather but it seems to work just as advertised. 12/30/2010
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Good product easy to install. Installation instructions need to be more specific. Exe Which mount to use, how to identify the one you have. 08/03/2010
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by great product, continous viewing a snap I am new to all of this and even though it may take me a minute or two to find the object in the telescope, once I do the tracker keeps it there for me so I can come back anytime and still have the object in view 05/24/2010
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Really Cool! Really easy to put together, I bought this for my son, 14, and he really loves it. We also keep it in the living room as a decoration. It was really great seeing the moon that close for the first time. It really has inspired my son. He wants to either work for Cern or Nasa. Nasa is looking pretty good right now. Anyway, great product. We will probably upgrade later with the same company! 03/01/2010
