Though the QuickSync motors include an on-board temperature probe for measuring ambient temperature changes, many purists prefer the measurement be made directly at the telescope OTA. To satisfy this requirement the #19539 External Temperature Probe Kit is available.
For users of the original Microtouch motors which do not include an on-board temperature, the #19539 External Temperature Probe Kit can provide the sensor for Temperature Compensation (TC) which would not otherwise be available.
