Motor Focus Kit Zero (For SCTs)

A must have for successful astrophotography sessions

Focus accurately and fast your Celestron SCT telescope using our powerful Motor Focus Kit Zero. This fast and zero backlash stepper motor has the required torque to focus your SCT telescope with great precision.

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 SCT bracket design (margarita style) can fit all new Celestron SCTs (Classic / Edge) and RASA series.

Motor Focus Kit SCT has been replaced by the Motor Focus Kit Zero.
Zero allows backlash free movement and is way faster than older motor

Please note that you will also need a motor controller to drive this motor.

Products that can drive the Motor Focus Kit Zero are:
Dual Motor Focus Controller
Ultimate Powerbox v2 only (v1 is not compatible)
eXternal Motor Controller

Zero backlash stepper motor

The embedded bipolar stepper motor provides a zero-backlash drive. The motor is very fast and allows you to quickly move from any focus point to another.

SCT Bracket

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:

  • Celestron Classic & EdgeHD 6, 8, 9.25 (SKU:PEG-FCZERO-SCT68925)
  • Celestron Classic & Edge HD 11 (SKU:PEG-FCZERO-SCT11)
  • Celestron Classic & Edge HD 14 (SKU:PEG-FCZERO-SCT14)
  • Celestron RASA 8” (SKU: PEG-FCZERO-SCT68925)
  • Cellestron RASA 11” (V2 – For V1 you will need Celestron Retrofit Kit) (SKU:PEG-FCZERO-SCT11)
  • Celestron RASA 14” (SKU:PEG-FCZERO-SCT14)

Please notice that we provide three different SCT versions.
The difference is in the metal pulley bore diameter & the screw length in the package.
Please make sure you have selected the correct type for your telescope.

Please note that some older SCT series are not compatible with the SCT bracket so contact us with a photo of your telescope focuser if you are not certain that your telescope can accept the SCT bracket.

SCT Bracket was designed to support Celestron SCT Telescopes. Although, we have seen that it perfectly fits on Meade SCT telescopes that have the round focus knob. Please check the image if your Meade Telescope is the same as the photo’s.
