Price includes VAT, plus delivery

The Optec Thirdlynx FTX40 system is an aftermarket add-on for the 3.5" R&P Starlight Instruments Focusers.

This motor design does not use an external controller as the electronics for this are now integrated into the motor unit which includes a built in temperature sensor. The DirectSync FTX40 motor provides a direct drive motor that can be easily disengaged for manual focusing. The DirectSync FTX40 motor kit is easy to install and provides a digital focusing solution that also allows manual focus when at the telescope.

The DirectSync APX30 package was designed especially for the 3.5" Starlight Instruments focusers. It features a direct gearing system that leaves the planetary reduction assembly and unique tensioning system intact, DirectSync FTX40 can achieve greater positional repeatability and carry imaging camera packages in excess of 5 kg (11-lbs)!

The motor can be used in both manual and automatic focusing modes. It is fully ASCOM compliant and can work in conjunction with higher level client software such as FocusMax and Maxim D/L as well as CCDSoft and TheSky X etc to provide auto-focusing.
