ASCOM FOCUSER DRIVER DOWNLOAD
I’m still experimenting with this as that seems to give almost too fine of control. RoboFocus Control Program 5. Unless you need this full-function program or the multiple drivers, use the basic driver listed above. I ran the four wires from these two motor ports to the pins of a female DB9 connector. Here is a list of the hardware I used: I need to try it when I am imaging planets or the Moon as that is where I thought manual control would be most beneficial. Most programs such as MaxIm DL already have the needed focus controls built in.

I wired one arm of the stepper across the M3 motor port and the ascm arm across the M4 motor port. RoboFocus Control Program 5. It has been reported that this driver also works with the RCX except it doesn’t allow access to its unique features.
This can be used to track when you might need to refocus as the temperature changes. The one downside is that the Robofocus controller is a bit on the expensive side.
This ascim has the ability to create several drivers giving the ability to control multiple focusers on the same system.
Installs a driver for the Astro-Physics series of telescope mounts. Feather Touch Focuser 4. Unless you need this full-function program or the multiple drivers, use the basic driver listed above.
This driver provides combined telescope, focuser, and dome interfaces each of which may be used by separate programs.
Here are the passing results. I need to focuaer it when I am imaging planets or the Moon as that is where I thought manual control would be most beneficial. Link to download the driver can be found at the bottom of the page you see when you click the Visit button.
Removed the dependency on the AccelStepper library – I didn’t feel I needed this capability for my geared Robofocus stepper motor.

In my case I was most intrigued by this website:. I have been using a Robofocus focus controller for many years now to control a Robofocus geared stepper motor on my various imaging telescopes. Micro Focuser all models Drivers focser all models of the Micro Focuser line of precision focusers. Note about wiring the stepper motor – the stepper I am using is a bipolar stepper.
The rotary encoder support was focueer I could manually focus the telescope. Arduino-based Motor Focuser Controller. I ran the four wires from these two motor ports to the pins of a female DB9 connector. I set it up so one step on the rotary encoder moved the stepper on the focuser by one step. Lunatico’s Seletek Focuser Software and drivers for the Seletek family of controllers.
This driver provides both telescope and focuser interfaces each of which may be used by separate programs. Use this for most applications.
I added support for the TMP36 so I could have a temperature reading from the focuser. I started with the code from the above website and made the following changes: Here is a list of the hardware I used: This makes it compatible with the cable that came with my Robofocus controller and I can plug my Robofocus stepper motor straight into the box with no gocuser.
I’m still experimenting with this as that focuuser to give almost too fine of control. This meant you just had to program your Arduino board with his code and the asckm Moonlite ASCOM driver would attach to your Arduino and “just work”.
Fortunately there have been many individuals who have explored using an Arduino with one of the many low cost stepper controller boards to build a focus controller. Most programs such as MaxIm DL already have the needed focus controls built in.
