    Optec TEC FocusLynx Kit - DirectSync for TEC Focuser with Hand Control

    Optec FocusLynx Kit With DirectSync Motor for the TEC Focuser, FocusLynx Control Hub, and Hand Control

    The Optec OP-FTEC-DSKitHC FocusLynx DirectSync TEC Kit includes the #19777 DirectSync TEC motor, the #19690 FocusLynx Control Hub, and the #19695 Hand Control unit.

    The Optec FocusLynx DirectSync TEC system is an aftermarket add-on for the TEC Large Focuser and it offers greater positional repeatability than the original QuickSync TEC package. 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 12 kg (27 lb). This kit from Optec includes the FocusLynx focus controller and new DirectSync digital motor with built-in temperature sensor, and also the Optec Hand Control. The DirectSync motor provides a direct drive motor that can be easily disengaged for manual focusing. The DirectSync motor kit is easy to install and provides a digital focusing solution that also allows manual focus via the convenient hand control when at the telescope.

    The Optec DirectSync can be used in both manual and automatic focusing modes, when it is coupled with the FocusLynx controller. 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.
