USB Focus is a robotic focusing system for astronomers. Motorize your focuser and control it from your computer, or by hand with or without computer. It connects to your computer USB port (or USB Hub 2.0 or 1.1), and does not require any other power supply even for the stepper motor. It connects to an external digital temperature probe, 0.1°C accuracy and can automatically follow best focus for the all night (temperature variations), see documentation for initial configuration. It comes with a handpad for manual electronic focusing and with an ASCOM driver for computer assisted focusing, see documentation for compliant softwares. It pilots a custom motor and reducer providing high accuracy (8000 positions per turn) and high torque (more than 85 oz.inch). It is backlash compensated. Several adapters are available to adapt to your specific focuser (flexible couplers, motor brackets,..).
