on the market. Both axis motors are built into a small single unit which
is universally compatible with all telescopes using a dove-tail
connection. In addition, there are no “dead spots” – so you can point
your telescope to ANYWHERE above the horizon, whereas, other mounts
block the telescope tube at certain points of rotation. This mount also
comes standard with AC connection. An optional DC adaptor is available
so you can plug your telescope motor into your car if you’re camping or
at any remote location.
