No hand unit is provided. The motor is equipped with a built-in variable-speed adjustment.
Note: Some C8’s manufactured before 1980 have a 3/16″ (as apposed to 1/8″) declination shaft diameter. If this is the case with your C8, please specify the shaft diameter. Some older C8’s have no Declination input jack and therefore require a hand unit. In that case, please request a hand unit, which adds $40 to the price. This product requires drilling small holes in your telescope equipment in some cases.
