FCUSB and Skywatcher Auto Focus

Post by MalcolmB » Thu Oct 22, 2009 9:43 pm

Hi all...

Is the FCUSB compatible with this: - http://www.firstlightoptics.com/proddet ... utofocuser and if so is there an adaptor lead available? The Skywatcher focusser is DC operated and has a 4p4c connector.

Best wishes

Malcolm

The Skywatcher Auto Focus looks very much like the Orion Accufocus:

I believe it should be compatible with our FCUSB, and would use our FCCBL-01 as the adapter cable.
