About this product

Model:  HitecAstro_DC_Focus

The new Hitec DC Focus is designed and extensively tested to support the Skywatcher Auto Focuser and JMI focus motors. Manual focus operation is provided but it is when connected to a PC via USB-2 that the Hitec DC Focus comes into its own.

Specially written software provides very accurate control of the focus motor, indeed everything including speed, accuracy and frequency of operation is adjustable.

HitecAstro have also developed an ASCOM compliant driver to compliment the Hitec DC Focus software bundle which should allow it to be used with any software which supports the ASCOM standard such as Maxim DL. CCD Soft, Focus Max etc.

Includes 12V DC Male Cigarette lighter plug for use with a suitable power source. 

Software for HitecAstro DC Focus

Existing Owners - Multiple Controllers

For existing Hitec DC Focus owners who wish to add a second controller to use alongside their existing one please select the 'Additional' option above.

This allows you to run a second controller in parallel with the existing controller on the same PC. In every other respect HitecDCFocus2 is exactly the same as the original.

Running two of exactly the same device from the same PC is not normally possible as the USB identifier would conflict and the PC would not know which one to talk to. HitecDCFocus2 contains a separate USB identifier so that they can be run side by side. 

Note you will need to install the HitecDCFocus2 software and ascom driver to control the new unit. You can find these on the Hitec Astro support page.

I have one of these connected to my Skywatcher Focus motor to my Samyang 135mm lens. I bought a 3d Printer toothed wheel and belt so as to connect the motor around the lens. I now have autofocus working brilliantly with my wide-field Samyang lens, controlled by SGP. The ASCOM driver software is picked up by astronomy programs straight away. So I am always in focus Delighted!!
