Sorry if this has been answered, I cannot seem to find a definitive one though....Is FCUSB compatible w/ FocusMax?
If not...any similar applications that are?
Thanks,

I've not tried it myself, but it should be. According to the FocsuMax requirements found at:
http://users.bsdwebsolutions.com/~larryweber/
you can use a "Any focuser having an ASCOM Focuser Standard interface". The FCUSB along with its ASCOM driver provides this capability.
