Celestron Focus Motor for SCT and EdgeHD Optical Tubes

The Celestron Focus Motor provides electronic focusing using a computer or Celestron computerized mount hand controller for remote/hands-free observing. It is specifically designed for use with Celestron Schmidt-Cassegrain (SCT) and EdgeHD telescope optical tubes. With the focus motor installed, you can bring celestial objects into sharp, precise focus using your telescope’s hand controller or a computer instead of using the focuser knob.

Must-Have Accessory for Astroimagers

A focus motor is great for visual observers who want to dial in exact focus (especially those with dexterity issues). With a motorized focuser installed, an astroimager no longer needs to be physically near the telescope to focus an image. Combined with computerized control of the mount and camera, the motor enables you to gather data remotely from a backyard observatory, or even a telescope located hundreds of miles away. As an added bonus, port covers protect the ports while not in use, and the covers cannot be lost due to the tethered design.

Self-Powering

You need not worry about powering the motor. When connected to a Celestron computerized mount, the mount provides the power to the motor. When connected directly to a computer, the motor is powered via USB.

Easy Controls

Motor controls include multiple speed rates, automatic GoTo indexed focuser position, and focuser backlash compensation. In addition, the Focuser Utility software for Windows provides a simple user interface and is also compatible with Celestron PWI. Autofocusing is easy through a camera and third-party software via ASCOM. Indexed focus position allows the motor to automatically return to a previous focus position and prevents the focus motor from reaching the end of telescope’s mechanical focus travel.

Compatible Optical Tubes

The focus motor is compatible with all Celestron SCTs from 6" to 14" in aperture that have been produced since the year 2006. It is also compatible with the 8" Rowe-Ackermann Schmidt Astrograph (RASA), the 36cm RASA, the 7" Maksutov-Cassegrain, and all the EdgeHD optical tubes except for the 9.25". You can also use this focus motor with the 11" RASA tube, but it requires a Focuser Retrofit Kit.

Celestron Focus Motor for SCT and EdgeHD

Celestron Focus Motor for SCT and EdgeHD Optical Tubes SKU: 94155-CELESTRON

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Celestron Focus Motor Wins! Great product! I had to remove my FeatherTouch manual focuser that came with my Celestron RASA 11" (version 1) and install a retrofit kit to accommodate the focus motor. Works great with my RASA. Somewhat easy to install if you have a bit of mechanical aptitude. Directions are easy to follow if not. Much better focusing now for imaging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Celestron Focus Motor, it’s a game changer for me! I love the fact that at high magnification there is no vibration when focusing. It’s a great investment and takes the frustration out of getting objects in focus.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works like a charm once installed. Not for tiny print and ambiguous instructions 5 stars. Installation accomplished despite instructions. Fine focusing is a huge upgrade from manual especially for astro-imaging. Target stars rock steady during focusing. Additional benefit no need to move around to focus when imaging more than one target per night when viewing on laptop. Number values can be entered to achieve near focus for different configurations. Note: this is the old 9.25 SCT incompatible A-model, likely the reason for the lower price compared to other vendors.
