Celestron Motofocus

Post by castella » Thu Dec 07, 2006 8:44 am

Hello,

I have a Celestron Motofocus electric focuser and would like to control it from my laptop. Will FCUSB work properly with it?

Thanks,

Jaume Castellà

Jaume,

The FCUSB should definitely work with the Celestron Motofocus.

I am using the FCUSB+JMI Motofocus for Celestron 9.25"+CCDSoft v5 @Focus and it all works perfectly. I'm also on Vista Ultimate 32-bit. In CCDSoft @Focus step size is large=400 and small=40 - this seems about the right setting for me.

HTH,

Tony.
