Lightweight and compact Starlight Instruments Electronic Focusing System (EFS) with HSM35 Motor, control box, and hand controller. Works with all ASCOM compliant software.
The control box is 4.13-inches (105 mm) long, 2.87-inches (73 mm) wide and 1.1-inches (28 mm) thick.
The hand controller has an innovative feature in that you can change the number of steps the focuser moves from 1 step, 10 step, or 100 step increments. This is done by pressing the knob on the hand controller. Each step speed has an LED light mode, RED 1 step, Amber 10 step, 100 Green step. It is connected to the EFS control hub via RJ11 cable.
The EFS system draws a maximum 1 amp of power at 12V and can be controlled by standard USB cable.
