ASA OK3 Electric Focuser
ASA Astrosysteme has just completed tests and has released its electric focuser for heavy payloads and image trains over 6kg payload (tested up to 20kg). The OK3 comes with an internal gear rack which greatly improves stability and repeatability of focus positions (crucial for remote operations).
The focuser works in conjunction with ASA’s improved electrical controller ensuring finer motor steps and smother acceleration (the controller can be ordered separately or can be integrated within ASA's Direct Drive Mounts). The new ASA OK3 and enlarged focuser tube counter plate will be standard with all ASA astrographs 16 inch and above.
The OK3 is shipped with a stand-alone ASCOM Focuser Driver and can also be controlled from within ASA's telescope control software Autoslew. In both cases the focuser can be accessed by third party software applications such as FocusMax and MaximDL via the ASCOM platform.
