The TS Focus Motor - focusing without touching the telescope!
Manual focusing is often challenging. Even the slightest touch of the telescope causes vibrations. But a dancing star or planet cannot be evaluated for precise focus.

Often, it is simply more comfortable and relaxing if you only need to press two push-buttons and completely concentrate on reaching the best possible sharpness.

For astrophotographers, a motor-driven focusing is almost a necessity.
The image of the star is on the screen of the computer which is often located far away from the focuser, especially at Newtonian telescopes. A motor-driven focusing saves standing up and the manual adjusting, You gain time and especially precision. Focusing simply works better.

Two big push-buttons allows for inverting the direction, the controling knob allows for adjusting the speed.

Mounting to focusers:
Included is a versatile base with long bores for adapting the TS AUTOFOC to the bottom side of the focuser. The base is used for fixing the motor to the focuser.

Then, the motor itself is connected directly to the focuser shaft by the flexible connection.

The AUTOFOC is suitable for Skywatcher and Orion Crayford focusers, but can adapted to other fosusers with a bit of technical skill.

A short testimonial from our customer Alexander Kerste:

"5 Stars
Inexpensive but functional solution to retrofit a simple motor focus. I use it on the Vixen 80MFt to focus during solar photography without having to get away from the laptop. The hand control box cable is long enough to sit in the shade while doing this. It has no problems with the sluggish rack and pinion focuser of the single Vixen focuser and the SunDancer II H-alpha attachment. Price/performance ratio fits, it does its job reliably."

"Für die rein visuelle Beobachtung mit meinem 6""Refraktor inkl. Bino reicht die Leistung des Fokus Motors gut aus .Ich denke aber wenn der 2"" Okularauszug mit einer schweren Kamera belastet wird ob die Leistung noch ausreichend ist !?"

"Gute Qualität, diverses Zubehör. Ich muss nun den Motorfokus mit etwas Bastelarbeit an meinem C8 anbringen. Habe im Internet Zahnräder und Zahnriemen bekommen. Wird aber kein Problem sein."

"Easy to install and very useful to reduce vibrations of the telescope. The speed knob seems to be working in the wrong direction, but otherwise I´m extremely satisfied with it."
