Hey there!

I understand what clock drives do, but do not know how I can incorporate one into the equitorial mount I am designing. Where can I get some info on how they work? Are they all one speed,do I have to gear it up or down, can I go directly on the end of the shaft on the RA axis? This is the stuff I'm looking for.
