No more Dodgy Focussing

Recommended Posts

After upgrading both MAK150 and 8"/F4 Newt with motorised Monorail focusers, I finally scraped together the remaining cash for the Rigel Systems USB / ASCOM computer control dongle:


After only been moderately impressed by (adept at!) physical button pushing, this latter has proved a "quantum leap" re. ease of use. Finally, I can concentrate e.g. on screen (video) images, while counting [displayed] step increments either side of focus. The average is, naturally enough, near perfect focus. A real boon in white light Solar though...

A great (Rigel) product delivered quickly by TS/DE. Among so many possible upgrades, this one (at relatively modest price) is very much recommended. :)
