Twin axis motors


Recommended Posts

Hi  I'm pretty new at stargazing and I'm thoroughly enjoying the few clear nights we've enjoyed in the Republic of Ireland in the last month. I've bought an entry level scope. The Celestron 130 EQ MD.And I was wondering if someone could tell me if I can buy the twin axis tracking motors as opposed to the single motor my scope came with. And secondly can I use the StarSence Explorer App with my scope. Thanks to anyone who reads this and I look forward to pick the communities brains, and hope to be able to participate in answering anybodies queries as I gain experience. Looking forward to hearing back from you.Many thanks in anticipation Dean.

The Celestron CG3/EQ2 wasn't designed to be used with dual axis drives, only single axis single speed and multispeed RA drives are available for these mounts. The DEC axis has a limited amount of rotation, unlike the larger CG4/EQ3-2 etc which can use dual axis drives.
