Prodigy is our new 3” robotic microfocuser. It includes the electronics and an accurate motor allowing you to precisely focus your telescope.

Its sturdy mechanical design ensures that Prodigy Microfocuser can lift up to 10Kg of equipment, dead accurate and flexure free. Focuser has a 25mm of draw tube travel and a clear aperture of 76mm / 3”.

Prodigy includes 2xUSB2 switchable ports and 2x12V switchable power outputs that provide electric “juice” to your equipment close to the focuser (e.g Filter Wheel, Guiding camera etc).

Clear aperture of 3 inches
Prodigy Microfocuser has a clear aperture of 3 inches or 76mm. Its drawtube can travel up to 25mm

Adjustable rotation
Focuser allows adjustable rotation / precise orientation on both sides. This helps you to easily fit the microfocuser to your telescope and also place your camera with the desired orientation.

Innovative design supporting high weight loads
Prodigy Microfocuser is not a Crayford neither a Rack & Pinion type. Its innovative mechanical focus design provides very high load support and accuracy with zero maintenance. Prodigy Microfocuser can easily lift up to 10Kg (22lb) of imaging equipment with zero flex

Zero Motor Backlash
Embedded stepper motor design ensures a smooth, low noise and backlash free operation. V-Curve points during automatic focus procedure are dead accurate.

Available Adapters for many telescopes
Prodigy has been designed to support out of the box the thread type and apperture of the Celestron SCT Edge 11”& 14”.
Of course, we are going to provide adapters for known telescope brands.

Industrial grade USB Hub and Power Ports
At the side of the focuser you can locate:

2 x USB2 ports
allowing the connectivity of equipment close to your focuser such as a Filter Wheel, a guiding camera, a motorized OAG etc.
2 x 12V power outputs
Each port can output up to 4Amps

A neat feature to tide up your USB and Power cables.
Each of these ports, USB or Power, can be switched ON/ OFF via the supplied software.


Temperature Probe
An external digital temperature sensor input is located on the side of the focuser. A digital temperature sensor is included in the package. The probe can be placed near the focuser so the exact temperature of the focuser / environment can be seen through the supplied software or ASCOM driver.
