FocusCube v2: A must have for successful astrophotography sessions
Focus fast, reliable, and accurate your telescope by using the “FocusCube 2“. The evolution of technology in astronomy requires a system that will assist the focusing of the telescope with great accuracy.
Fast optics and modern camera devices require automatic focusing in every small period of time as the temperature can affect the focal length and modify the optimal focus position. Pegasus FocusCube has been developed to meet all of these requirements.
Lifts more than 6kg (13 lbs) of Imaging Equipment when Telescope Point to Zenith
FocusCube has a very low backlash and high torque suitable to focus in micron scale.
Due to its high resolution and torque, the FocusCube should be placed on the coarse knob / direct shaft of your telescope focuser
High Resolution Geared Stepper Motor in an Aluminum Enclosure
Designed in a high-quality CNC body with modern electronics, FocusCube provides digital precise focus control, for absolute position focusing.
We have designed the L-shaped bracket to easily fit onto most focusers in the market. The lower part of the redesigned bracket can be replaced with a slimmer rail (included) for better compatibility with Newtonian and other low-profile focusers. This L-shaped black anodized aluminum bracket is hard to bend, has cut rails, and can be attached to a wide range of focusers.
Solid Motor Couplers in Package
Five solid, different bore size, motor couplers are provided so you can select the coupler that fits to your focuser’s shaft. Choose between 4mm to 8mm couplers
Other Features & Information
An external digital temperature sensor input is located on the side of the focuser. A digital temperature sensor is included in the package. The probe can be placed near the focuser so the exact temperature of the focuser / environment can be seen through the supplied software or ASCOM driver.
Expansion Port / Manual Focus
FocusCube includes an expansion RJ45 port at the back of the enclosure. This port provides input for the temperature sensor. An optional hand controller for manual focus control can be acquired for those who might want to add this functionality. This is an Optional Accessory
ASCOM and INDI support
FocusCube v2 supports latest ASCOM and INDI framework.
Firmware Upgrade Support
Firmware supports re-programming via the USB 2.0 connection using upgrade software (only available for Windows), for future upgrades which may become available. We constantly receive feedback from our customers and keep updating the firmware and software with new features.
Unity Platform Support
Pegasus Astro Unity Platform is our new all around application. Our goal is to provide a robust and modern application that is going to support current and future products under one roof.
A modern frontend allows the full control of all Pegasus Astro devices. Moreover, a REST JSON API helps developers from 3rd party software to interact with our products.
As we continuously develop our applications, based on customer feedback, lots of innovative features are going to be added in upcoming releases.
