All MoonLite's High Resolution stepper motor options use a premium, low backlash Hurst stepper motor. This provides very fine .00008" resolution and accurate position repeatability required for today's high end imaging systems. It comes as an option on all single and dual rate model focusers (SCT, Refractor, and Newtonian). It has such a fine variable rate that the reduction unit is not needed, so it is not offered on dual rate focusers. The Power slip clutch system allows both motor and manual focus control of the focuser at any time. We now make High Res Stepper Motor install kits seperatly that are easy for customers to install themselves at a later time. The new motor kits require the focuser to have the new style tapped upper flange part to support the Motor brackets. However we do offer a replacement upper flange for customers wishing to install a motor kit on an older style MoonLite focuser.

The miniV2 is an ASCOM compliant stepper motor controller for Moonlite's High Res Stepper Motors. The controller works with all ASCOM based software packages out there today such as Focus Max, CCDSoft, MaximDL, etc. Besides ASCOM drivers for both 32 bit and 64 bit systems, we also provide an Non ASCOM software program for customers that are not running ASCOM based programs and need only a basic program to operate the focuser on a PC. Works great for a simple remote focus solution. The miniV2 controller has built in temperature sensor as well as a remote temp probe. The controller runs on 12 Volts DC and we include an AC adapter that has all the different plug configurations (US, Europe, UK, and Australia); however, most customers will simply use 12-volt power off their mount. This new miniV2 controller is designed to be used by a PC or its manual buttons and speed control knob for manual operation at the scope. All cables are included with the controller.

Moonlite stepper motor kit .
Friday, 3 January 2020  | 

Purchased the kit just before Christmas ,to go with my Moonlite SCT focuser .The kit was well packaged and comes complete with detailed instructions on how to mount and operate the kit .It took me about 30 min to install the motor and bracket ,and another 10 min to load the laptop programmes for using it with Ascom astro programmes . You can also operate the focuser with a downloadable programme from moonlite which is a standalone control on your pc/laptop , and finally you can control focus with the handset .The amount of focus control is amazing ,you would be struggling to be this accurate using the sct focus knob .The main reason for this purchase is that I have limited feeling in my fingers ,and this has taken my viewing to a new level .
