    Astromaster Motor Drive is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works with older Celestron C4.5! i have been looking for years for a motor drive for my old Celestron C4.5 telescope, this drive fits and works great! If you have an older scope, it is worth the effort!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal for my Astromaster 114 EQ I was shopping around for this online and while a lot of folks sell it, none has a better price than B&H. I ordered it 2 days ago and received it today with their SuperSaver free shipping option. Installation is simple and they even include the Allen wrench and screwdriver needed to change it from the GC-3 to GC-2 mount (both are included but the GC-3 is already installed). Celestron includes a 9v battery, but suggest you install an alkaline or at least have one available. Time from getting the package to having the drive installed and working was < 30 min and it works fine. If you are serious about astrophotography, then get a drive for your scope and you won't regret it

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functions well for visual work The Celestron worm gears are very cheap, therefore periodic error is pronounced. Also, tension on the worm gear varies...at times it is very easy to turn, at other times very tight. This causes the motor to speed up and slow down. The error I've seen is less than one arc-minute...totally acceptable, and barely noticeable for visual viewing. But, for astrophotography, forget it! Without a fast or slow button in your hand, you watch the star drift off your crosshairs and there is nothing you can do about it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does its job Well, it does its job right. It keeps the telescope aligned, but there are a few small annoying things about it. For one the case is loose and kind of just flops around, and it is a bit loud, especially with the case on. But the most annoying thing is a feature that it is lacking: A clutch for fine tuning it manually. Once it is screwed on the only way you can manually adjust the alignment of the scope is to loosen it up and move it around by hand. That's kind of annoying. Other than that though, it works!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 90% there After receiving this motor and mounting it my EQ head. I was able to get it tracking for 2 minuet exposures after no more than half an hour of adjustment. As another reviewer has pointed out, it would be very useful to have a larger knob to adjust the speed of the motor. Aside from that if you're looking for an inexpensive way to track with a dumb EQ mount this is the way to go.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cheap motion control for timelapse I bought this to move my camera along my slider for timelapse photography. Did the trick well. Need to gear down between the motor drive & the slider to slow things down further, enabling me to do longer timelapses over a period of 8 hours or more. Currently will move the camera over the 31 inches in 1-4 hours, depending on the speed dialed in.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Low cost DIY solution for timelapse Shooting timelapse is a one-off activity for me and I didn't want to invest much in a solution to motorize my DIY skatewheel dolly. This motor drive works perfectly for me at it's highest speed with a simple string winding up around the built in drive shaft. I added a larger diameter sleeve over the shaft and it worked perfectly to move my dolly much faster for video work. This makes a very inexpensive motorized drive for a slider/dolly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smooth Order The motor works exactly as expected and I've had no problems. Ordering was easy ... I did have to carve a slight amount additional space for the switches in the casing.
