Add motorized tracking convenience to the EQ-1B mount! This cordless, precision DC servo drive allows motorized tracking of objects in space as they appear to migrate across the night sky due to Earth's rotation. This version of the Orion AstroTrack Drive works with telescopes supplied with the EQ-1B equatorial mount. The Orion AstroTrack DC Motor Drive provides precise electronic, hands-free tracking of celestial objects as they move across the sky. The AstroTrack Drive counteracts the axial rotation of the Earth, making celestial objects appear to stand still in a telescope's field of view. You won't have to reposition the telescope to re-center an object in the eyepiece as the object moves across the sky - a welcome convenience! The Orion AstroTrack has variable-speed tracking control, allowing adjustment to the exact sidereal tracking rate as well as to speeds slightly slower or faster than sidereal. This ensures accurate tracking of both solar system and deep-sky objects, and allows for correction of any inherent deviation in the motor from the sidereal rate. The AstroTrack Motor Drive for EQ-1B Mount provides sufficiently accurate tracking for piggyback and short-exposure planetary astrophotography. It is not recommended for prime focus, long-exposure photography. Add an Orion AstroTrack Drive to your EQ-1B Mount and start enjoying accurate tracking of celestial objects for more enjoyable observations!
