This dual axis motor drive, with drive corrector capabilities, is designed for Celestron's CG-4 telescope mount.  It precisely controls the telescope's tracking speed during long, timed exposures of celestial objects, producing the best possible image sharpness.

Precision drive correction is a must for those with serious interest in astrophotography or CCD imaging.  Four speeds are available-1x (sidereal), 2x for guiding, 4x & 8x for centering.

The precision, state-of-the-art DC motor drive operates from 4 "D" batteries(not included).  The hand controller module is very compact, and fits easily in the palm of your hand.

    CG-4 Mount Dual Axis Motor Drive is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Would be Great if it Worked The motor drives I received had obviously been returned and restocked, there was dirt and a small piece of grass inside the empty battery compartment and one of the cables which supplies power from the control to the motors is faulty. Each of the motors works with the cable meant for the R.A. drive, but the cable for the D.E.C. drive does not supply enough power to turn the gears. I'm waiting for a response with an ra# to exchange this for a new one that functions properly. As far as the actual product, at the $100 level it's good for the cost, kind of flimsy and cheap build but considering the cost of higher level drives this one is good and seems like it will track accurately when everything works how it is supposed to.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Motor Drive for CG-4 Mount I have this on my CG-4 EQ mount and it tracks sky objects perfectly as long as the mount is set up correctly. I didn't have any problems attaching the Declination axis motor but most of the time I don't use it as the mount slow motion knob is easier. The plugs for the cord connectors could be better as they seem a bit fragile.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inexpensive Drive for a Solid Mount I bought this drive for my CG-4 mount to do casual observing. It assembles easily enough but the declination motor/clutch assembly has to be played with to get it into proper alignment. Things I like: Low cost, ease of use. Things I wish it had: High speed slewing, clutch mechanism for RA drive to allow manual slow motion control.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice tracker This tracker is a good choice for one who is on a tight budget! Tracks stars well if aligned well.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for the money Operates as expected but the plastic covers for the motors just slip on and fall off. Not really a big deal since nothing is exposed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good to have one Good quality, well built, and very helpful for finding polaris axis accurately. One complain is the insturction, basically it is useless eventhough the installation is a brief.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Celestron CG-4 Mount Motor Drive I already reviewed this excellent motor drive. I just purchased a second motor set as I am contemplating another CG-4 mount purchase also.
