Take your Celestron AstroMaster 130EQ to the next level with a motor drive. This add-on allows the telescope to continuously track an object without the need to touch the telescope. The motor drive automatically turns the telescope at a pace to counter the movement of the Earth. This means if you are looking at Jupiter, there is no need to continue to turn the telescope tracking knobs to keep it in your eyepiece for viewing. With the motor drive, the object you are viewing stays in your eyepiece the entire time. Not intended for children under age 12.
