The Dual Axis Controller from Vixen Optics attaches to one or two optional Vixen MT-1 motor drives to give the user control of direction and speed for general skywatching or astrophotography. It provides accuracy to the motors to within ±0.005% of the sidereal rate. With batteries, which are not included, it will run for approximately 20 hours.
The controller provides 32x sidereal for general purpose movement, and 2x sidereal directional accuracy for astrophotography guidance. It communicates with the motors via two included cables (one per motor).
