Product overview

• Control tracking speed to keep an object in the eyepiece for a long time for astrophotograpy
• Can be used in the Northern or Southern Hemisphere

What telescopes is this motor compatible with?
Track stars for a long time with the CG-2 or CG-3 equatorial mount for your PowerSeeker or Astromaster telescope. The motor adjusts your right ascension to compensate for the earth’s rotation and comes with two easy set up brackets, one for the CG-2 mount and one for the CG-3. You may also require a flat head screwdriver (not included). The Celestron motor powers from one 9V battery with no wires to get in the way.

How easy is it to set up?
Polar align your telescope and attach the motor, choose a star and switch the motor on. If the star you’re watching appears to move west the motor is tracking too slowly, if it moves east then the motor is tracking too fast. Tune the motor’s speed using the speed rate regulator. You can also track celestial bodies that move at a different rate across the sky like the moon. Over a long period of time you may need to make minor adjustments in declination to keep the object centred on your telescope.
