It is so that you can disengage motor.
I guess I was posting at the same time you replied.
If I purchase the optional motor to allow tracking, this lever will attach to that?
I am considering buying that motor and am glad I am asking questions rather than just jumping in. A picture showing this with the motor would be greatly appreciated.
I just downloaded the manual for the motor drive and that explains it completely. I had only been looking at the manual for the mount as I assumed it would be described there. I am surprised that Orion puts this clutch on all mounts if it is only required for the drive motor, but most users probably end up buying the motor eventually anyway. Thanks much for the info.

I had only my mobile camera in hand but hopefully this will clear it somehow.
That shows exactly what I was curious about. This is one thing I really like about CN members, I can ask questions, some being pretty dumb, and I always get polite answers.
Thank you much
