USED Sky-Watcher Dual-axis Motor Drive for EQ5/CG5 Mounts

Used drive set in good shape with original box. Asking $159.99, but will entertain reasonable offers.

Tracking is a breeze with Sky-Watcher motor drives. Simply add the drive to your equatorial mount, turn it on, and away you go. The motor turns the RA axis slowly, to keep the stars in your field of view. The hand control operates both the RA and additional DEC axis drive, to allow for fine-centering, and manual guiding.

Motor drives are essential for astrophotography, and for those that enjoy sketching their observations. Sidewalk astronomy sessions are a breeze when tracking is automated
