FocusLynx FT with QuickSync

QuickSync FT - the best of both worlds...

Optec has developed the FocusLynx FT system as an advanced multi-focuser control system.  Expanding upon the TCF-Lynx development project, Optec engineers designed the ingenious QuickSync FT add-on motor assembly with an improved gear engagement system.  The QuickSync motor, coupled with the FocusLynx Controller, provides an easy-to-install and operate digital focusing solution that retains the capability of manual focusing when at the telescope.  Sold as the HSM (Handy Stepper Motor) through Starlight Instruments, the QuickSync FT is the best dual purpose motorized solution for both visual and imaging astronomers.

 FocusLynx FT for Feathertouch

Read our FocusLynx FT Whitepaper for the philosophy behind the development of the FocusLynx FT system and a detailed description of the system.  Coupled with the FocusLynx controller, QuickSync can be used in both manual and automatic focusing modes.  Fully ASCOM compliant, Optec's FocusLynx Commander software works in conjunction with higher level client software such as FocusMax and Maxim D/L as well as CCDSoft and TheSky X to provide auto-focusing for a wide variety of manual focusers. 

Sold individually or in pre-packaged kit forms, there is a QuickSync motor and FocusLynx FT package to fit nearly any FeatherTouch focuser and pinion assembly available..
