Hi Forum Members,

I received a Tasco 11TR 4.5" Reflector back in 1984 as a Christmas present. I used it extensively as a teenager, and I still have it at my parents place.

On a recent trip back home, my brother and I got it out and removed the scope from the mount and mounted a 35mm DSLR onto the mount. With some polar alignment and manual tracking we successfully took some 60 second shots of Orion and Southern Cross. It was quite fun.

I am curious if a motor drive is available for that old equatorial mount ? I would assume that it is, because that telescope was ( is ) around for many many years.
