Hi

you are right, package is now more evolutive.
It includes a power supply. So you can choose to power the motor using USB or using the power supply if your set up requires higher torque.

The selection between both modes is done by moving an internal jumper, no screw driver needed.

This is a nice new feature for people with several scopes or people who use different imaging train in different situation (home, nomade,..).

Best regards
Vincent

It would be nice to see you develop a system that will work with Meade's new LX850 SCT OTA's which have a 7:1 microfocuser. With their zero shift system that doesn't need a mirror lock it would be nice to use their existing focusing system with your product.
