Astrophotography is also possible when a mount has dual-axis drive with drive corrector capabilities. The Celestron dual-axis motor drive system is powered by four D-cell batteries in a self-contained battery pack. The drive can be used in either the Northern or Southern Hemisphere. To change hemispheres (reverse the motors direction), simply flip the N/Off/S switch on the drive corrector hand controller. The drive corrector hand controller can be used to move the telescope at different speeds.
This is achieved by choosing the desired speed on a switch marked 2x/4x/8x. Twice the sidereal rate, or 2x, is used for guiding on a star when doing astrophotography. The 4x speed is used to center objects in the eyepiece. The 8x speed can be used for centering objects in the finderscope as well as the eyepiece. This package includes an RA and Dec motor, clutch, mounting brackets and hardware, drive corrector hand controller, and power pack.
