The computerized telescope mount is calibrated and set to the coordinates
of the center of our galaxy, the Milky Way, where there is a black hole named “Sagittarius A*” (equatorial coordinates: right ascension 17h 45m 40s / declination −29° 00′ 28″). The electronic drive in the telescope mount rotates the broomstick to point to the location 24 hours a day.
