Optec Motorunit FT
FocusLynxFT with QuickSync
Optec has developed the FocusLynx FT system as an advanced multi-focuser control system. Optec engineers designed the QuickSync FT add-on motor assembly with an improved gear engagement system. The QuickSync motor, coupled with the FocusLynx Controller, provides an easy-to-install and operate digital focusing solution that retains the capability of manual focusing when at the telescope. Sold as the HSM (Handy Stepper Motor) through Starlight Instruments, the QuickSync FT is the best dual purpose motorized solution for both visual and imaging astronomers.
Fully ASCOM compliant, Optec's FocusLynx Commander software works in conjunction with higher level client software such as FocusMax and Maxim D/L as well as CCDSoft and TheSky X to provide auto-focusing for a wide variety of manual focusers.
QuickSync FT Motors are in 3 versions available:
