I purchased the motor drive for my Celestron 127EQ telescope. The model number was the one quoted by Celestron as the one for the mount. I received the drive from Optics Planet (Excellent service, and price match, by the way, so no issues with seller). However when I tried to attache the flexible drive shaft to the drive screw, the hole in the drive shaft was too small, and would not fit the drive screw. I have not been able to attach to the mount. I have contacted Celestron, but have not received any response as to why the drive motor does not fit the mount.

Using the Celestron Motor Drive makes focusing effortless. I would definitely recommend this device for anyone who wants to focus and track celestial objects electronically.

Pros:  Good tracking, 2-axis
Cons:  No clutch for R.A. drive
Would recommend:  yes

It does what it is supposed to do, which is to track the sky, assuming you do a reasonable job aligning your mount. You can do minor slewing with the buttons on the control, so it is easy enough to manually correct for any setup inaccuracies. My biggest gripe is that the R.A. drive does not have a clutch that you can disengage. With the motor installed, you *cannot* turn the RA by hand using the slow-speed hand control, so you might as well remove the hand control. That is a *big* irritation, as even the 8X speed is way too slow for going any distance. You'll be reduced to loosening and pushing the scope directly.

At high magnification I could take a long exposure shot of Saturn with ease. Its far cheaper and works great to track the sky than autotrackers. You just have to know what you're looking at.
