Computerised GOTO Telescopes

A popular development in astronomy is the go-to mount. To create this, manufacturers attach motors to both the altitude and azimuth axes. The motors also connect to an onboard computer. Once you run through a simple setup procedure, the go-to drive will find and then track your celestial target. Mounts using this system are highly accurate. Once the drive locates an object, it will follow it as it moves across the sky without you moving the telescope. Most go-to scopes manufactured today have large databases with thousands of objects.
