With its large celestial object database, including all of the well-known galaxies, nebulae, star clusters - not to mention the planets, sun and moon - you'll be able to enjoy star gazing with the simple push of a button. Both axis motors are built into a small single unit with optical encoders that provide accurate GOTO and tracking. The control system also allows you to slew the telescope at different drive speeds, keeping the object within the telescope's viewfinder for as long as you wish.
