Follows objects automatically
Increase your observation pleasure by having the Bresser RA Quartz engine following the objects automatically. This tracking motor works with the Bresser Lyra/Pluto and Galaxia telescope.
Why use a tracking motor?
Any observations you make will take place from the earth. So when you are looking through the telescope at a celestial object, the object slowly moves out of the field of view of the telescope, because the earth rotates. To compensate for the earth's rotation, you must continuously adjust the telescope so that the object is kept ´on the screen´.
You have to adjust your telescope both horizontally and vertically. You can do this automatically using a tracking motor. A tracking motor is available in two versions, one that only compensates for the horizontal axis (or right ascension) and one that compensates both the horizontal and the vertical axis (declination).
The above engine compensates only the right ascension.
If you want to take pictures of objects, the object remains absolutely stationary relative to the camera and this a big plus: if you would try this manually, your photos would quickly look faded.
