Controlling FocusCube2 Through Pocket Powerbox Advance

Post by jwaters125 »

When I purchased the Pocket Powerbox Advanced Gen 2 I was under the impression I could control my FocusCube2. Any plans to update the software to provide this capability?

Hi, These are two different devices so we cannot control the FocusCube through the PPB Advance.
FocusCube has its own software and ASCOM drivers.

The PPB Advance has an external Focus Motor which is plugged via the EXT port. Any other controller (including the FocusCube) is used as a normal USB device via USB ports.

The FocusCube2 uses a USB interface and is controller by SW. Why can't the PPBA app be modified to control the FocusCube2? Yes, you would need the driver or a modified driver for the FocusCube2.
