Single axis stepper motor tracking system for EQ3 - compensation for the earth's rotation

This tracking motor set is intended for the Skywatcher EQ-3 mount. It is mounted to the R.A. axis and compensates for the movement of celestial objects. When the motor is switched on, long-term observations are possible with the object staying inside the field of view.
All that's need to be done before is a polar alignment of the mount.

Perfect control through stepper motors
The tracking speed is kept precisely by a quartz-controlled stepper motor. You additionally have the opportunity change the speed to 2x and 8x sidereal speed in order to center an object in the field of view.
