New state-of-the-art, low voltage 12 VDC clock drive/drive corrector runs anywhere in the world without changing the motors or circuitry. Using less than .5 amps at 12 volts, the dual-axis drive corrector can be selected to run at lunar, solar or sidereal rates. Declination motor, declination reversing switch, and dual-axis hand control unit are included.
Also new is a spring loaded, quick release, anti-backlash declination tangent system with manual and electronic slow-motion tracking capabilities.
