Motor Focus Kit SCT v2


Focus accurate and fast your Celestron SCT telescope using our powerful motor focus kit SCT. This high resolution geared box has a 0,06 degree step size can can easily lift more than 6 Kg (per cm). Its high torque is suitable for lifting heavy imaging equipment. Moreover, motor’s gearbox has a very low backlash which can easily tuned using backlash compensation in imaging software.

Pulley and Belt design allows the motor to stay away from your filter wheel (and not collide with it) when you use a focal reducer. Its sophisticated bracket design can fit to most of Celestron SCTs

Note: You will need a stepper controller to drive the motor. Check our Dual Motor Focus Controller

A special shaped black anodised aluminium bracket, hard to bend, can be attached to most of the Celestron SCT telescopes. We have successfully installed it on:
