Hi, 

 

My single-axis EQ platform (for 12'' dob) uses Celestron's ASTROMASTER/POWERSEEKER motor drive (9V DC).

It is a cheap, but working option for my purpose. My only complaint is that it does not have a quick sidereal/lunar/solar speed switch and I need to turn a tiny knob to change speed. Probably I do not need this 3-way switch, but  just a hand controller with a big tuning knob + ON/OFF switch.

 

Is there anyone who finished this mod for the EQ platform?
