This Celestron battery-operated single axis drive motor will work with Celestron AstroMaster and PowerSeeker telescopes and Celestron CG-2 and CG-3 mounts only. It is a single axis drive designed to move the scopes electrically in right ascension for visual observing and solar system photography.
The #MDASTRO has a variable speed control to match the differing speeds at which the Moon, planets, Sun, and stars move across the sky. It also has switch-controlled northern/southern hemisphere operation. The drive runs for up to 40 hours from one 9 volt transistor radio battery (supplied), depending on the air temperature (battery life is shorter when the temperatures are colder). Your telescope can be manually moved to any part of the sky while the drive is functioning by releasing the right ascension and declination locks and pushing the telescope tube in the desired direction. However, the drive does not have a built-in clutch, so the thumbscrew attaching the drive to the telescope must be loosened if very precise centering and positioning is desired using the manual slow motion controls.
