Aquest, Inc.            Astronomy Products for Astronomers by Astronomers


Aquest, Inc continues its leadership with an addition to its line of automated focusing tools for the astroimager or visual observer!
The newest and most exciting of these products, PCFocus-LX ™, provides the only way to auto-focus or otherwise precisely control the Meade Microfocuser® from a personal computer (local or remote).  The Meade Microfocuser is available separately or comes standard on all Meade LX-200GPS® telescopes.
PCFocus-LX brings heretofore-impossible auto-focusing, temperature compensation, and other PC or remote control to the Meade LX-200GPS line of telescopes or telescopes equipped with the separately available Meade Microfocuser (standard on LX-200GPS telescopes). A simple add-on equips the Microfocuser with encoder capability allowing it to be controlled by the PCFocus unit and any auto-focusing and/or temperature compensation software. Installation is very simple and is performed by the user in less than 5 minutes. Installation entails simply removing the existing Microfocuser plastic covers and installing the PCFocus-LX in their place.  No wiring is required.  A cable is included which allows the PCFocus-LX to be connected to the LX-200 or LX-200GPS panel focuser output so the AutoStar or LX-200 handset can manually move the focuser if desired.  Switching between manual or automated movement is automatically controlled by the PCFocus-LX circuitry.
