Anyone use a Switched systems focuser with an ED80

Recommended Posts

And if so, does it work well..?

They have am RS232 version, which I could run via a Belkin USB controller from the netbooks, anyone using one like this, and if not, if I went with the shoestring USB interface (I like their stuff), what motor focuser for an ED80 would you recommend?

Hello Nick,

I got one several years ago, before I got involved in astrophotography, to use on my Helios ST120.

It's fine for visual use as it stops all the wobbling about, but the one I have isn't accurate enough for AP in my opinion.
