    FAQ

    Q:

    What is this screw on the top of one of my accessory rings?

    A:

    Some PowerSeeker EQ models have two accessory rings that are needed to attach the optical tube to the EQ mount. On the top of one of the rings is a threaded stud with a thumbwheel. This is designed to allow the attachment of a camera with a ¼-20 threaded insert. The ¼-20 thread pitch is standard in the photographic world. This is very beneficial when used in conjunction with the optional AstroMaster/PowerSeeker Motor Drive (part #93514) for sky tracking. This ¼-20 mount is not used to attach your telescope to the EQ mount and is not needed for using your telescope in the traditional manner.
