So  my birthday just past so money to splash on astro stuff , i will have my 1000D modded by juan at cheapastrophotography and also have ordered an autofocuser from deepsky dad https://deepskydad.com/autofocuser i know they can be done DIY but this is a neat package  and costs about the same as a SW autofocuser and a hitechastro focusmaster and i`m no electronic wizard and pavel seems to have a good product and works with ascom and confirmed it works with APT i will update in a few weeks time when hopefully i will have received and tried out .

yes basically this is arduino unit and ascom compliant 

I’ve seen this term arduino but it’s not one I’m familiar with! 

Sounds like this is a better alternative to the SW + Hitec?

Can’t be used manually only via a computer, something to bear in mind 

Sounds even better! Hopefully he makes more stock soon.  What colour are you getting?

I wondered whether the stepper motor would freewheel if no power was applied, perhaps aloowing you to manually adjust focus with the focus knob at the other end of spindle. 

Can anyone confirm this? 

Thanks,

Thanks! I’m doting. Thought it was €99, maybe I done the conversion into £ and rounded it down (man maths) ?
