FocusLynx Focuser Hub

FocusLynx hub body with connection ports
and installed Wireless Board accessory.

The FocusLynx Focuser Hub offers an easy way to simultaneously and independently control up to two Optec or Starlight focusers through a computer, smartphone, or hand control. Each focuser may be plugged into the hub using standard serial cables. The FocusLynx can then be connected to a computer via serial cable, ethernet, or wireless network (with purchase of the extra FocusLynx Wireless Board accessory). Once connected, are ready to go! You can simply open up any focuser control program or Optec's proprietary FocusLynx Commander control software and you will be able to control each focuser the way you would without the hub. Optec also offers an optional FocusLynx Hand Controller (stock #19695) that can be plugged into the FocusLynx to allow telescope-side control of each focuser.

Additionally, if the hub is connected to a computer via wired or wireless ethernet, the FocusLynx will generate its own control webpage that can be accessed with any web browser or smartphone. Since this page is generated and displayed by the hub itself, once you are connected, there is no further configuration required: just attach your focusers and go!
