Meade Electric Motor Drive Model 533 for small eq mounts #07476
Meade Electric Motor Drive Model 533
For attachment to Meade Models 290, 290C, 294D, Saturn 60EQ, Polaris 60EQ, and the Infinity 60EQ
The Meade Model 533 electric motor drive attaches easily and directly to the EQ mount of the telescopes listed above. With the motor drive attached and turned on, the telescope automatically moves at the correct rate to track any celestial object and keep it centered in the telescopic field. If the EQ mount of the telescope is is properly aligned to the pole, the motor drive will keep the object in the field of view for 10 to 20 minutes before re-centering is required. The 533 Motor Drive can be switched between the Earth's Northern and Southern hemispheres, by changing from N to S on the drive's front panel. Once installed, the 533 may be left permanently attached to the telescope.
This motor runs many hours off of 3 AA batteries, not included.
Note: This motor package comes with the 2" chromed gear, so it can be adapted to many small Japanese and Chinese equatorial mounts.
