Vixen DD-1 Dual Axis Controller

Details

This dual-axis controller/drive corrector is for use with two optional #3752 Vixen MT-1 motor drives. These are compatible with the current Vixen Great Polaris, Great Polaris D2, and Great Polaris Economy German Equatorial Mounts and on telescopes using these mounts. It is also compatible with the optional MT-1 on older Super Polaris and Super Polaris DX mounts and scopes.


When controlled by the DD-1, the accuracy of the MT-1 motor drive is within +/0.005% of the sidereal rate. Powered by 8 user supplied D batteries, this will run for approximately 20 hours.
