This sale includes both the JMI Smart Focus controller and an NGF-S focuser that mounts on the visual back of your SC scope. The advantage of this system is that the Smart focus controller has encoders that provide for precise positioning of the focal plane, and the NGF-S - since it does not move your primary mirror - avoids image shift. The NGF-S has a somewhat limited length of travel, so one needs to get in rough focus with your stock focuser first.

Included in the sale are:

The NGF-S focuser
The adapter to mount the focuser on the visual back of your SC
The Smart Focus control box
A 6p6c cable to connect the control box to the focuser.
A USB to serial cable to connect the Smart Focus control box to your PC

A more complete description of the system can be found here: http://www.jimsmobil...or_controls.htm

All the JMI software to run this system can be found on the legacy JMI site http://www.jimsmobil...oftware_sf.htm

I have used the JMI software to control the focuser, but it, by itself does not do autofocusing.
According to the web site the system is capable of autofocusing when paired with appropriate software and camera. I have not tried those systems.

Price includes shipping to CONUS.

PayPal only, I eat the fee.
