Q. Are your MOTODEC motors AC or DC powered?
A. All JMI MOTODEC motors are DC powered.
Q. How is the MOTODEC controlled?
A. Celestron and Meade SCTs usually have a declination motor jack in the base control panel.  The MOTODEC is connected here and controlled by the telescope’s hand unit.  Some German equatorial mounts include a hand unit with a declination motor jack and some do not.  This information is specified in the product description.  If you would like to add a hand unit to a declination motor that does not normally come with one you can do so for an additional cost.  Please specify this when you order.
Q. How is the MOTODEC unit attached to the telescope?
A. All JMI MOTODEC units for SCTs are friction driven push-on motors that go on and off in seconds for easy storage.  The German equatorial versions are chain or gear driven and require about one minute to remove, if necessary.
Q. Do you have a MOTODEC for the old Meade DS-10 and other out-of-production telescopes?
A. We have MOTODEC units for many older mounts.  Even if your mount is not listed, we may still have parts in inventory.  However, the cost will be much higher than for those shown in our online store.  Please note that some of the Meade mounts require the installation of a tangent arm for the MOTODEC to function.
