Stepper motor control for RA axis with control for EQ5/NEQ5 mounts to compensate for earth rotation
The motor with control is for Skywatcher´s EQ5/NEQ5 parallactic mounts, it attaches to the RA axis of the mount and compensates for the apparent movement of the stars from east to west.

When the motor is switched on, the targeted object remains in the field of view. Observations over a longer period of time are possible.

The control fits among others the following mounts:
Skywatcher EQ5/NEQ5
Celestron Advanced Mount ADM
Vixen GP Series
Meade LXD 55 / Bresser Mon 2

Perfect control by the stepper motor control
The speed of the tracking is perfectly maintained. The stepper motor is crystal controlled. Furthermore, you have the possibility to change the tracking speed to position the object in the eyepiece (factor 2x and 8x).

Due to the precise tracking and the possibility to change the speed via the hand control box, astrophotography is possible with the EQ5 mount. Moon and planets can be photographed very well and also the recording of nebulae, star clusters and galaxies becomes possible.
Stepper motor with control unit
Battery pack 6 V for four standard batteries ("D" cells, not included)

"Tut, was sie soll, führt mein GSO 8"" f/5 auf NEQ5 auch mit Zusatzmaterial (geschätzt 12-15kg) einwandfrei und ohne Vibrationen nach. Die Programmierung des Mikrocontrollers ist offenbar mit Vollschritten (hört man), die Schwingungen übertragen sich bei mir aber nicht auf den Tubus. Hier liesse sich noch ganz leicht etwas optimieren."
