FocusCube Zero: A Must Have for Successful Astrophotography Sessions with your SCT Telescope
Focus fast, reliable, and accurate your Celestron SCT telescope by using the "FocusCube Zero".
The Stepper motor provides high speed, focus accuracy, and zero backlash. You only need this device to focus! Attach the FocusCube Zero to your SCT telescope, plug the power, the USB cable, download ASCOM drivers or our Unity platform and you are ready to go!
Zero Backlash Stepper Motor
The embedded bipolar stepper motor provides a zero-backlash movement. The motor allows you to quickly move from any focus point to another. As there is no reduction gearbox the speed is suitable to move the primary mirror in or out at very fast rates.
Easy and Repeatable V-Curve Focus
A V-Curve is the result of moving the focus of a telescope from an outside focus position into the focus and then further into the same direction out of focus again.
With FocusCube Zero you can easily achieve nearly perfect v-curve lines leading to a sharply focused image.
A special shaped black anodised aluminium bracket, hard to bend, can be attached to most of the Celestron SCT telescopes.

An external digital temperature sensor input is located near the motor connector. A digital probe of one meter (3 feet) length is supplied. 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 (probe is included in package)
Expansion Port / Manual Focus (optional accessory)
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.
