DESCRIPTION

Starlight Instruments Feather Touch Focuser Boss II Control System

Starlight Instruments Feather Touch Focuser Boss II Control System is a modular hub that acts as the central controller to link the Starlight Instruments HSM and Posi Drive Motors systems to a PC. The Focuser Boss II Control System works through any ASCOM compliant software, such as Maxim DL, FocusMax, SG Pro, and CCD Soft. It is compatible with a Mac through using The Sky X Software. You can also download the stand-alone Focuser Boss II Software.

Upgrade Options

Out of the box, this system comes complete with everything needed to connect. However, it does have upgrade options. Options that let you drive two motors simultaneously, externally measure the telescope OTA temperature, and be controlled by a smartphone, tablet, or computer via Wi-Fi. Here are some of the accessories available for the Focuser Boss II.

Starlight Instruments Focuser Boss II Hand Controller

This hand controller provides an easy, vibration-free method of focusing the telescope. It features IN and OUT buttons, a 2-line display, and Quick Sync synchronization capability. The Focuser Boss II Hand Controller is a must-have option for any system where the operator may be at the telescope.

Starlight Instruments Focuser Boss II 2nd Focuser Control Board

The standard Focuser Boss II Hub can easily be converted into a dual-focus controller with the addition of the second stepper driver board. Controlling two focuser motors is useful if you are running two telescopes on the same mount or if you want to control the mirror focuser and an additional crayford on a SCT telescope.

Starlight Instruments Focuser Boss II Wi-Fi Control Board

The Focuser Boss II Hubs includes a wired Ethernet connection and interface as standard, but many users prefer to use wireless Ethernet with their telescope setups. This Wi-Fi board eliminates the need for any communication wires to the control PC or tablet.

Starlight Instruments Focuser Boss II Thermistor

All Starlight Instruments Motors include an on-board temperature probe for measuring ambient temperature changes. However, some prefer that the temperature can be read directly at the telescope itself. This kit allows you to place the temperature probe anywhere you like.

Starlight Instruments Focuser Boss II Hub Bracket

This mounting bracket allows an easy way to permanently attach your Focuser Boss II Hub to almost any telescope mount or dovetail bar.
