Meade DC Motor Drive for Meade Polaris series Equatorial Telescopes. Adds
continuous RA tracking to telescope, so operator does not need to manually
operate RA slow motion control to keep objects in the eyepiece. For use with
Meade Polaris German Equatorial Mount only. The Meade Polaris Electric RA
Motor Drive attaches easily and directly to the Polaris EQ mount in under five
minutes. With the motor drive attached and turned on, the telescope can move
at the sidereal rate to track any celestial object and keep it centered in the
telescopic field. With the variable speed adjustment, you can quickly and
easily change the tracking speed to track the moon, planets, or sun (proper
solar filtering required). The motor drive will keep the object in the field
of view for 10 to 20 minutes before re-centering is required on a well polar
aligned mount. Polar alignment required for use. Once installed, the RA motor
drive may be left permanently attached to the telescope. This motor runs for
approximately 40 hours off of a single 9v battery (included). The Polaris
Electric RA Motor Drive is compatible with operation in either Northern or
Southern hemispheres, and can be switched between the two simply by selecting
the proper hemisphere on the N/S switch on the motor’s front panel. Product
carries full one year factory warranty.
