Dual Axis Motor Drive for the LX70 German Equatorial Mount not only moves your telescope electronically, but keeps an object centered so that your camera can capture a sharp image. Adding motors to your mount also makes viewing much more comfortable for longer periods of time without needing to center the object as it drifts through the field of view.
Adds full time RA tracking and motorized movement in both RA and Declination controlled via the included keypad. Speed selectable for 2x, 4x, and 8x sidereal. Northern and Southern Hemisphere compatible, with selectable N/S switch. Requires 4 D-Cell batteries, not included.
The Meade AudioStar features audio files and an internal speaker. This computerized celestial object locating system plugs into the telescope's handbox port allowing a quick telescope alignment.
Once aligned with the sky the AudioStar is ready to take you to any object in the over 30,000 object database. In addition to GOTO and tracking capability the AudioStar permits a wide array of fascinating and educational functions such as multiple Guided Tours, digital positional readouts, the ability to link with a PC using optionally available software and cord, and much more.
AudioStar Controller #07640 is compatable with the StarNavigator, ETX, LT, LX80, LX90, and LXD75 series telescopes.
