      Comments about Celestron Motor Drive for AstroMaster/PowerSeeker EQ Telescopes:

      This came along with the Celestron 114EQ bundle.

      Installation isn't too complicated; everything is pretty basic.

      It's utility, however, is questionable.

      There's no way to know what the 'right' tracking speed is; you kind of have to keep an eye on it over time to make sure that what you're watching is still within frame.

      Definitely not for astrophotographers.

      If the motor is running too slow and your object is speeding out of view, turn it clockwise. If your motor is running to fast and the object is moving out of frame, turn it counterclockwise. There is no middle; you're constantly having to adjust.

      And sometimes, I'm not even 100% certain that it's actually moving.

      Pros: Easy to install, simple directions, takes a 9V battery

      Cons: no basic tracking setting; constantly having to adjust. very noisy. bulky; often gets in the way.

            Comments about Celestron Motor Drive for AstroMaster/PowerSeeker EQ Telescopes:

            So I have a Celestron 130EQ. I decided to get this so I could get some pics. The first one came in and did not have enough torque to turn the RA slow motion. I spoke with Hayneedle (telescopes.com), and they sent me a new one with a free upgrade to 2-day shipping. I did have to purchase it again and wait for a refund, which took about 3 days, but you can't really hold that against the company. I was very pleased with the customer support, and will continue to use telescopes.com for future purchases.

            Installation is a snap. 1 hex-head bolt for the mount, and 2 that attach the mount to the motor. It's a little difficult to get the speed perfect, and polar alignment has to be absolutely perfect or you get a dec drift, but that's true for any aftermarket drive motor.

            If you want your manual Celestron scope to track (EQ2 or 3), this is a perfect product.

              This motor installs easily and appears easy to use as well. I just received it and haven't had a chance to use it due to weather but it seems to work just as advertised.
