ASA 3 OK Focuser
Astrosysteme Austria is pleased to announce the OK3-Z electronic focuser. With a 20kg payload and improved stability, the ASA OK Focuser is still compatible with all ASA Astrographs as well as other telescopes from other manufacturers. It can also be purchased alone. With a motorized stepper, USB ports, and ASCOM software compatibility, and six bearings, the accuracy and compatibility of this focuser is brilliant. ASA's tests now make it possible to create a the OK3-Z focuser with a maximum payload of 20kg while still maintaining stability and repeatabile focus positions for remote operations.
The focuser works in conjunction with ASA’s new and improved electrical controller ensuring finer motor steps and smother acceleration (the controller can be ordered separately or can be integrated within ASA's Direct Drive Mounts). The new ASA OK3-Z and enlarged focuser tube counter plate will be standard with all astrographs 16inch and higher.
The OK3-Z focuser is shipped with a stand-alone ASCOM Focuser Driver and can also be controlled from within ASA's telescope control software Autoslew. In both cases the focuser can be accessed by third party software applications such as FocusMaxtm and MaximDltm via the ASCOM platform.
