The Celestron Motor Drive for AstroMaster/PowerSeeker is equipped with a speed rate regulator that allows the motor drive to track at a faster or slower speed. This is useful when observing non-stellar objects like the Moon or Sun, which travels at a slightly different rate than the stars.
Note: Never observe the Sun without using a proper solar filter with your telescope! The Motor Drive is also equipped with a North/South switch that can reverse the direction of the motor for Southern Hemisphere use. Simply slide the switch to "N" when operating in the Northern Hemisphere and "S" when operating in the Southern Hemisphere.
To allow tracking of celestial objects, Celestron offers an optional single-axis motor drive for the CG-2 and CG-3 EQ Mounts. Once polar aligned, the motor drive will accurately track objects in Right Ascension as they move across the sky. Only minor adjustments in Declination will be necessary to keep celestial objects centered in the eyepiece for long periods of time. Celestron Product Number: 93514
