It would be nice to be able to choose where you place it, but it’s built into the frame of the optical assembly. hi i have this scope and motor drive and its true the md is a bit crappy (for want of a better word) the trouble is that when the scope is pointing at a high angle the cable attachments do catch the md housing:mad: i took this off then the tightening bolt for the ra hit . Generally, refractors (telescopes that use lenses instead of mirrors) are preferred to reflectors for photography. The 130EQ, like all of the AstroMaster Newtonian reflector models, comes with a 20mm erecting Kellner eyepiece for low magnification views.

It's analog and doesn't have encoders, so you can only control the speed of the motor with a little knob. We recommend purchasing a quality low-power eyepiece around 18-20mm and a 2x Barlow for higher magnification viewing. This impressive magnification and light-gathering ability make it well-suited for exploring a variety of deep-sky objects.It comprises a geared motor that can be sped up or slowed down by the means of a small dial on the control box.

I have now had plenty of nights seeing the moon up close as it passed through its phases and showed off its creator pitted face. A few turns of the wing nuts and the three legs slide out, turn the nuts back, and they are locked sturdily in place.

Despite the heavy steel construction, this mount is subject to some vibration, which is frustrating for experienced astronomers. This award-winning optical system reduces visual defects like field curvature and coma, creating an ultra-flat field for pinpoint stars all the way to the edge of today’s largest imaging sensors.

The motor that you get for beginners mounts isn't up to photography standards, They can be nice however for higher magnifications on planets. ED stands for "extra-low dispersion," which refers to the composition and optical properties of the glass used for the lenses.
