One Controller for several motor units with SteelGo II Software

With a Steeldrive II motor focuser with Controller (#2957165 , € 665,-) , you can automatically control your focuser with a computer as well as use the keys of the hand control for precise, vibration-free focusing.

The Steeldrive II consists of a motor unit, which is connected with a timing belt to the focuser's slow-motion-control to work without backlash, and of a control unit with the electronics, which also doubles as hand control. This modular design means that you can equip each of your telescopes with its own motor unit and only need one controller, which you connect to the telescope you are currently using. Only if you operate several telescopes at the same time, then you need several controllers.

SteelDrive II Motor unit and Controller now available separtately

The latest version of the SteelGo II Software for controlling the SteelDrive II motor focuser offers the possibility to comfortably store the data of any number of telescopes (each with its own motor) with its own bookmarks, temperature compensation coefficients and much more and to control them with only one single controller.
