The FocusLynx DirectSync APO system is an aftermarket add-on for the 2.5" and 3.7" R&P Focusers used on several APM and Tecnosky telescopes. It is also compatible with several Altair, TS and other branded telescopes. Please contact us to enquire if your focuser is compatible. The kit includes the FocusLynx focus controller and DirectSync APO digital motor with built-in temperature sensor. The DirectSync APO motor provides a direct drive motor that can be easily disengaged for manual focusing. It is mounted onto the coase focuser dial leaving the fine focus dial available for manual use. 

The FocusLynx DirectSync APO package was designed especially for the 2.5" and 3.7" R&P focusers manufactuer by United Optics. It features a direct gearing system that leaves the planetary reduction assembly and unique tensioning system intact, DirectSync APO can achieve greater positional repeatability and carry imaging camera packages in excess of 5 kg (11-lbs).

Coupled with the FocusLynx controller, QuickSync can be used in both manual and automatic focusing modes. Fully ASCOM compliant, Optec's FocusLynx Commander software works in conjunction with higher level client software such as FocusMax and Maxim D/L as well as CCDSoft and TheSky X to provide auto-focusing for a wide variety of manual focusers.
