Omegon Dubbelassige motoraandrijving voor EQ-500 X
The tracking motor set for EQ-500 X telescopes
You've only just located an object in your visual field before it once again wanders away. This is why you should mount your telescope on a motorised drive and save yourself from constant manual tracking. A good accessory for beginners who want to find their celestial bearings more quickly or want to dare to try astrophotography for the first time.
The advantages at a glance:
- Automatic RA axis tracking counteracts the Earth's rotation: the objects remain constant in your visual field
- Motorisation on RA and DEC axis: hand controller with four direction keys and different speeds
- Ideal for visual observations and first steps in astrophotography
- Power supply via the included mains adapter, or alternatively via 12V-24V DC 5.5/2.5 plug
Relaxed observing with automatic tracking
Once you have aligned your telescope with the first point of reference, you can keep the target stars and planets constantly in view, precisely in the middle of your visual field of view. With no manual tracking, you can concentrate fully on observing and take time to observe every detail - and also show friends and family.
The motor moves the telescope at the correct sidereal speed. Using the four direction keys of the hand controller and different selectable speeds, you can make fine and coarse adjustments in the positioning.
For every location on Earth
No matter where: Use your telescope for observations from any location you like. It even works in the southern hemisphere. You simply adjust your telescope's automatic direction of rotation using the N/S switch.
The first steps towards your own astrophoto
Of course, this EQ-500 X accessory increases the comfort of your visual experience, but automatic tracking is also essential if you want to practice astrophotography. It makes it possible to take long exposures of objects without blurring. The Moon, individual lunar craters and planets can be wonderfully captured.
