Fast (8x) speed allows relatively quick gross incremental changes in location. With tracking mode turned off, the Guide speed accelerates to 32x; Slow speed to 64x; and Fast becomes a speed-demon at 800x.
  • Latitude scale for adjustment of the telescopes equatorial orientation during the set-up process to facilitate more accurate tracking
