Starizona MicroTouch Autofocuser Wired - MTAF
The Starizona MicroTouch Autofocuser Wired is a precision instrument designed for automating the focusing process of telescopes.
This device is specifically wired for compatibility with telescopes and is produced by Starizona, a renowned manufacturer of high-quality astronomy equipment.
The MicroTouch Autofocuser employs advanced motorized technology to achieve precise and automated adjustments to the telescope's focus, ensuring optimal clarity and sharpness in celestial observations or astrophotography.
This wired version is designed to be directly connected to compatible telescope systems, providing a reliable and efficient solution for achieving precise focus in astronomical observations.
Features and Highlights
- Automatic Focus with ASCOM-Compatible Software: The Starizona MicroTouch Autofocuser Wired offers seamless automation of the focusing process when used with ASCOM-compatible software like FocusMax, MaxIm DL, Sequence Generator Pro, and more. This ensures that precise focus adjustments can be made with ease, enhancing the clarity and sharpness of astronomical observations and astrophotography.
- Temperature Compensation with Built-In Thermistor: Equipped with a built-in thermistor, this autofocuser is capable of temperature compensation. This feature enables the system to make real-time adjustments based on temperature changes, ensuring that focus remains optimal even as environmental conditions fluctuate during the course of an observation session.
- Integrated Electronics in Hand-Controller Box: Unlike systems that require a separate hub and additional cables, the MicroTouch Autofocuser Wired consolidates all of its electronics into a single hand-controller box. This streamlined design not only simplifies the setup process but also reduces clutter, making it a more convenient and user-friendly solution for automating focus adjustments.
- Manual Control for Visual or Video Use: In addition to its automatic capabilities, the MicroTouch Autofocuser Wired provides the option for manual control using the hand-controller box. This feature is valuable for visual observations or when using video cameras or webcams, allowing users to fine-tune focus settings according to their preferences and specific requirements.
- MicroTouch Software for System Configuration and Remote Operation: The included MicroTouch software offers a user-friendly interface for configuring the autofocuser system and enables remote manual operation. This software provides a convenient way to customize settings and remotely adjust focus, enhancing the overall flexibility and versatility of the MicroTouch Autofocuser Wired in various observational scenarios.
Made in USA: The Starizona MicroTouch Autofocuser Wired is a precision-crafted astrophotography accessory proudly manufactured in the United States. It offers precise and automated focusing, ensuring sharp, detailed images by seamlessly integrating with your telescope setup.
