The superb Pegasus Universal Motor Focus Controller and stepper kit for Celestron SCT 6, 8 and 9.25 inch telescopes is a perfect match for visual astronomers and astro photographers. For the best possible control of critical focus without the need to touch the telescope.
The V3 controller supports full manual and digital operation for imaging or visual use. It's fully PC ASCOM compliant and the drivers are very easy to use and install compared to most focuser systems available currently. The Pegasus software control system is considered to be one of the highest quality and most hassle-free commercial focusing solutions on the market today.
Pegasus motors are accurate, fast and powerful, with a high resolution, low backlash gearbox. 0,06 degree steps easily lift over 6Kg per cm. The High torque system easily moves heavy imaging equipment. The motor gearbox has low backlash, which can easily tuned out using backlash compensation in imaging software.

Just like using a manual focuser for visual observing or planetary imaging! A manual operation by utilising the digital encoder on the top of the controllersimulates the knob of your real focuser. Turn the knob just like the knob on your telescopes focuser. If you press the knob, the speed of the motor will be reduced by 1/10 speed, just like the fine focuser knob found on most dual speed focusers.
Out of the box support for PC control. The controller can be operated by PC using its USB 2 connectivity.
