ASCOM FOCUSER DRIVER

ASCOM FOCUSER DRIVER

I started with the code from the above website and made the following changes: Here is a list of the hardware I used: I need to try it when I am imaging planets or the Moon as that is where I thought manual control would be most beneficial. The one downside is that the Robofocus controller is a bit on the expensive side. Installs a driver for the Astro-Physics series of telescope mounts. Note about wiring the stepper motor – the stepper I am using is a bipolar stepper. I have been using a Robofocus focus controller for many years now to control a Robofocus geared stepper motor on my various imaging telescopes.

I ran the four wires from these two motor ports to the pins of a female DB9 connector. I axcom with the code from the above website and made the following changes: I’m still experimenting with this as that seems to give almost too fine of control. I added support for the TMP36 so I could have a temperature reading from the focuser.

Focuser Drivers

The one downside is that the Robofocus controller is a bit on the expensive side. Installs a driver for the Astro-Physics series of telescope mounts. Focused Control Program 5. Use this for most applications.

MSFASTRO.NET

Here is a list of the hardware I used: Note about wiring the stepper motor – the stepper I am using is a bipolar stepper. I set it up so one step on the rotary encoder moved the stepper on the focuser by one step.

In my case I was most intrigued by this website:. This can be used to track when you might need to refocus as the temperature changes. Micro Focuser all models Drivers for all models of the Micro Focuser line of precision focusers.

This meant you just had to program your Arduino board with his code and focusfr official Moonlite ASCOM driver would attach to your Arduino and “just work”. Most programs such as MaxIm DL already have the needed focus controls built in.

Starlight Instruments – When only the Best Focusers will do!

Unless you need this full-function program or the multiple drivers, use the basic driver listed above. Link to download the driver can be found at the bottom of the page you see when you click the Visit button. Feather Touch Focuser 4. Here are the passing results.

This makes it compatible with the cable that came with my Robofocus controller and I can plug my Robofocus ffocuser motor straight into the box with no problems. Fortunately there have been many individuals who have explored using an Arduino with one of the many low cost stepper controller boards to build a focus controller. Removed the dependency on focussr AccelStepper library – I didn’t feel I needed this capability for my geared Robofocus stepper motor.

I have been using a Robofocus focus controller for many years now to control a Robofocus geared stepper motor on my various imaging telescopes.

Lunatico’s Seletek Focuser Software and drivers for the Seletek family of controllers.

This driver provides combined telescope, focuser, and dome interfaces each of which may be used by separate programs. Arduino-based Motor Focuser Controller.

I wired one arm of the stepper across the M3 motor port and the other arm across the M4 motor port. The rotary encoder support was so I could manually focus the telescope. This docuser provides both telescope and focuser interfaces each of which may be used by separate programs.

It has been reported that this driver also works with the RCX except it doesn’t allow access to its unique features. This driver has the ability to create several drivers giving the ability to control multiple focusers on the same system. I need to try it when Focusr am imaging planets or the Moon as that is where I thought manual control would be most beneficial.
