ThirdLynx controllers are integrated directly into the motor endcap and provide USB connectivity to a control PC. 12VDC power is required and supplied with each motor. ThirdLynx functions similar to original FocusLynx with the same software drivers and controls
QuickSync motors include the integrated ThirdLynx control circuit dispensing with the need for an external control hub. A digital temperature sensor is integrated into the ThirdLynx control circuit for temperature compensated focusing. Connection to the observatory or telescope control computer can be made using any standard USB A-B cable. A separate 12VDC power connection provides sufficient power to vertically lift cameras or instrument packages exceeding 5 kg. Optec’s new ASCOM Alpaca driver and field-proven FocusLynx Commander software round out the package for complete remote telescope focusing solution.
