Below is a photo of our nFOCUS DC focus motor on the WO scope. All it took was moving the set screw hole on the WO focus knob. Same setup will work with our nSTEP focus motor product line. If you got it, we can motorize it :-)

Hi,

Can nFoucs + DC motor be powered by AAA or similar small batteries or should I use a external 12V battery?

Thank you.

nFOCUS contains 3 AA batteries, which are boosted to 12V inside :-)
