In an effort to bring the best products to its customers we have signed on with PegasusAstro in Greece.

These European made accessories add functionality without hurting your wallet.

 

We have been wanting to put this post up for a while, but we have not been able to keep stock on the shelf!  

 

Upgrade your current focuser with a Stepper motor.   SCT owners don't fear.  If you have a Celestron C6, C8 or C9.25 we have a kit for you too.

 

The Dual motor focus kit is a controller that will work with DC motors and Stepper motors.  The kit comes with a stepper motor, but if you have a DC motor on your focuser and you want to control it from your laptop now you will be able to.  Simply buy the controller on its own.

 

The Dual motor focus kit will work with a variety of focusers including

  • Orion Optics UK default focuser
  • GSO (RC focuser)
  • Takahashi (FSQ85,FSQ106)
  • Moonlite (2”, 2.5”)
  • Baader (Steel track)
  • Synta Focuser Refractors
  • Orion
  • Explore Scientific
  • Antares
  • Skywatcher Dual Speed 2″ Crayford
  • Altair Astro (2”, 2.5”, 3”)
  • Stellarvue
  • Starlight (2”, 2.5”)

 

PegasusAstro has products for Dew control, EQMod connections, focus control, and the ultimate in Power control.

 

Check out the Ultimate Powerbox.  With 6 USB ports, 4 controllable 12VDC ports, Dew control, and a stepper motor controller. WOW!!!  All of which is controllable via ASCOM, or with its standalone software.  There is even a plugin for The SkyX.  Eliminate 4 boxes on your scope or your mount with one box.  Less cables to run up your mount to get tangled!!  Port 6 of the USB hub can also power up a DSLR with an optional cable.

 

 

Our Antares Focusers can be ordered with a motor installed as well!  If you want to upgrade your SCT or Newtonian we have you covered.

 

 

The complete line of Pegasus Astro can be found HERE

Are they planning a version for the Edge HD SCTs?

 

Also, will the normal system work on 2" V-power focuser, found on the 71mm 20th Anniversary William Optics scopes?

 

Are pinouts available to allow use of the motor with a different focus control system (Arduino, Raspberry Pi, etc.)?

Yes we do, stay tuned. We are going to release an SCT bracket that will fit to all Celestron tubes in less than a month

The L shaped adapter is generic. Supports lots of focusers including the 71 WO scope. It is also provided a blank adapter (optional) for someone who want to drill his own holes.

Pinout is available in Pegasus Manual of the Controller (same Robofocus pinout)

Thank you.  I appreciate the answers.

 

This is a very appealing product, to me.

What about support for Starlight (3.0”), I have a FeatherTouch 3.0" and a TSA102 and would like to know if this is supported with an adapter?

The Ontario Telescope website does list the 3.0" Starlight as being supported.  http://www.ontariote...sal_p_1412.html

 

Maybe it was just left out of the initial post?

That looks like just the solution I've been looking for! Will you be selling the motor and mounting part of the kit to go with the Ultimate Powerbox?

Our new SCT Motor Kit is available for orders. You can order the SCT Motor Kit or the Dual Motor Focus Premium SCT (USB controller is included - an all-in-one package solution to automatically and remote focus your SCT telescope).

 

Pulley and Belt setup allows the motor to stay away from the filter wheel (and not collide with it) when you use a focal reducer. Its sophisticated bracket design can fit to all Celestron SCT (Older and Edge Models)
