These economical single axis (R.A.) DC motor drives are designed to compensate for the earth's rotation. Their rotation speed matches the earth's rotation rate for stars to appear stationary in telescope eyepieces. With the 9-volt alkaline battery (included) installed, it lasts up to 40 hours. Can be fitted to any of our telescopes supplied with the EQ2
Can be fitted to any of the Sky-Watcher telescopes supplied with the EQ2 equatorial mount, provides single speed (1x sidereal) motor tracking of the R.A. Axis. Battery Powered.
A plug-in accessory for the V.3 Handset (requires V3.1 Firmware) that uses global positioning satellite technology to automatically locate and input the users position (longitude & latitude) to the handset. Not suitable for use with a PC.
The Celestron NexStar RS-232 Cable connects to your computerised telescope to a laptop or PC for control via various planetarium software programs. The large adapter attaches to the serial port of your computer and the other end plugs into the telescope's hand control via a phone jack plug. If your computer does not have a serial port, you will need a Serial-to-USB
This Starwave vixen-format dovetail bar is used to attach your telescope mount to the tube rings. The dovetail bar is a crucial structural element, helping assure telescope stability. This thoughtfully designed, hard-coated, 15mm thick aluminium dovetail bar offers several advantages over rough-cast budget versions the most important of which is probably
Linking cable for the Sky-Watcher SynScan AZ GOTO Handset. Enabelling the upgrading of AZ Auto-Tracking mounts to fully GOTO operaton.
These economical single axis (R.A.) DC motor drives are designed to compensate for the earth's rotation. Their rotation speed matches the earth's rotation rate for stars to appear stationary in telescope eyepieces. With the 9-volt alkaline battery (included) installed, it lasts up to 40 hours.
The new HM5 Polar axis finder scope is a very useful accessory for the EQ3-2 Equatorial Mount. It speeds up and refines the polar alignment procedure so you can spend more valuable time observing, rather than setting up.
21cm custom-made dovetail bar for Sky-Watcher EQ5, HEQ5 and EQ6 Mounts. For the secure mounting of your telescope on these precision Sky-Watcher mounts, drilled to accept Sky-Watcher Tube Rings.

Drives, Replacement Control Panel / Motor Board, Hand Control Cable, Cable Clamp and Hand Control Holder (12V D.C. Power Supply required - not supplied).
Replacement handset for the Sky-Watcher HEQ-5 and EQ-6 motor-drive kits. Provides multi-speed (1x/2x/4x) motor tracking of the R.A. Axis. Battery powered.
These dual axis motor drives, designed for EQ3-2 mounts, are essential in long-explosure astrophotography. They precisely control the telescopes' tracking speed to compensate for the earth's rotation during long exposure of celestial objects. Available in 2x, 4x, and 8x speeds through the Hand Controller. These DC motor drives run on 4 "D" cell batteries
