  • Small size and weight
  • improved compatibility with WiFi, Bluetooth module and SynScan controller

The Telescope Control System (TCS) EQDrive Standard 4 automates the work of the mount (equatorial and azimuthal) or focuser. The TCS use Stepless(Vector) Algorithm and works with practically any mount operated by a stepper motor. It supports a wide range of Gear Ratio and Speed of axes, Soft acceleration and deceleration, allowing users to operate their telescope mount through Astronomical programs and SynScan hand controller.
