LightBridge TRACKING  Ever the innovator of useful after-market telescope gadgetry, JMI announces its Track-n-Train Drive System ($399-$429) for Meade's popular LightBridge Dobsonian reflectors.  The kit's easy-to-install friction-drive motors allow you to keep objects centered in the eyepiece for more than 10 minutes.  The friction drives let you move the telescope without having to loosen clutches; you then simply let go of it to have the TNT Drive System take over.  Other features include high-speed object centering and one-touch repositioning of the drive's altitude tangent arm.
