The Explore Scientific TDM Tracking unit 2.5 is designed to attach to popularly available equatorial mounts. The Telescope Drive Master™ (TDM) uses a mount-specific adapter, an ultra-high resolution encoder and an electronics package that transforms your drive system into a super-performance, research-grade drive. This device does not require tedious PEC training, just turning on the TDM almost eliminates all of the periodic and non-periodic tracking error of your equatorial mount.

The electronic controller unit compares the signals incoming from the high precision rotary encoder mounted onto the RA shaft with the time signal of its quartz oscillator. Any deviations of the angular velocity of the RA shaft from the prescribed drive rate, are compensated by feedback regulation in real time by accelerating or slowing down the drive.

If further correction is needed because of errors other than periodic drive error, the TDM allows auto-guider input as well.

Please note: you will need an additional appropriate adapter to fit the encoder unit to your specific mount. Please see our website or call us for availability.
