The EQDRIVE KIT is designed for motorization of the mount with a load capacity of 40 kg and more. This kit will turn your the mount into a computerized complex with GOTO. The Telescope Control System (TCS) EQDrive Standard 5 automates the work of the equatorial, German and Fork mounts. 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.

    I’m very happy and impressed with this unit. I replaced the old FS2 control unit on my mount and it performs very well. I have used the EQDirFi – Skywatcher wifi adapter and it works well with this. My mount is rated for 100 lbs and the EQDrive unit and supplied steppers handle it with no problem.
