This driver provides combined telescope, focuser, and dome interfaces each of which may be used by separate programs. I have been using a Robofocus focus controller for many years now to control a Robofocus geared stepper motor on my various imaging telescopes. I set it up so one step on the rotary encoder moved the stepper on the focuser by one step. This driver has the ability to create several drivers giving the ability to control multiple focusers on the same system. RoboFocus Control Program 5.

Micro Focuser all models Drivers for all models of the Micro Focuser line of precision focusers. I added support focjser the TMP36 so I could have a temperature reading from the focuser. Feather Touch Focuser 4. The rotary encoder support was so I could manually focus the telescope. I have been using a Robofocus focus controller for many years now to control a Flcuser geared stepper motor on my various imaging telescopes.

Arduino-based Motor Focuser Controller.

Lunatico’s Seletek Focuser Software and drivers for the Seletek family of controllers. This driver has the ability to create several drivers giving the ability to control multiple focusers on the same system.

I wired one arm of the stepper across the M3 motor port and the other arm across the M4 motor port. RoboFocus Control Program 5. This makes it compatible with the cable that came with my Robofocus controller and Ficuser can plug my Robofocus stepper motor straight into the box with no problems. This driver provides combined telescope, focuser, and dome interfaces each of which may be used by separate programs.

This driver provides both telescope and focuser interfaces each of which may be used by separate programs. Unless you need this full-function program or the multiple sscom, use the basic driver listed above. I need to try it when I am imaging planets or the Moon as that is where I thought manual control would be most beneficial. I set it up so one step on the rotary encoder moved the stepper on the focuser by one step.

Most programs such as MaxIm DL already have the asom focus ascpm built in. Link to download the driver can be found at the bottom of the page you see when you click the Visit button. Fortunately there have been many individuals who have explored using an Arduino with one of the many low cost stepper controller boards asdom build a focus controller. I ran the four wires from these two motor ports to the pins of a female DB9 connector.

Software / Instructions / Operation

Use this for most applications. The one downside is that the Robofocus controller is a bit on the expensive side. Note about wiring the stepper motor – the stepper I am using is a bipolar stepper.

Installs a driver for the Astro-Physics series of telescope mounts. Removed the dependency on the AccelStepper library – I didn’t feel I needed this capability for my geared Robofocus stepper motor. In my case I was most intrigued by this website:.

Focuser Drivers

It has been reported that this driver also works with the RCX except it doesn’t allow access to its unique features. I started with the code from the above website and made the following changes: This can be used to track when you might need to refocus as the temperature changes.

This meant you just had to program your Arduino board with his code and the official Moonlite ASCOM focsuer would attach to your Arduino and “just work”.

Here are the passing results. I’m still experimenting with this as that seems to give almost too fine of control. Here is a list of the hardware I used:
