Optec Motorunit TEC
FocusLynx TEC with DirectSync
The FocusLynx DirectSync TEC system is an aftermarket add-on for the TEC 3,5" Focuser and includes the DirectSync digital motor with built-in temperature sensor.
With a direct gearing system that leaves the planetary reduction assembly and unique tensioning system intact, DirectSync can achieve greater positional repeatability and carry imaging camera packages in excess of 12kg (27-lbs)
Coupled with the FocusLynx controller (not included) DirectSync can be used in both manual and automatic focusing modes. Fully ASCOM compliant, 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.
The Optec FocusLynx Controller Hub is necessary for operating and must be ordered separately (# 1317500). More information are available here.

Please note that the DirectSync TEC depends upon the left side mounting holes being present on the TEC 3.5" Focuser. If the mounting holes are not available, they must be drilled by a competent company and be cut a corresponding thread. Please contact Baader Planetarium or Optec for details.
