SpaceCat 51 Autofocus

May 9, 2020 - Reading time: ~1 minute

Another autofocuser configuration I'm trying out with the William Optics SpaceCat51 and the Deep Sky Dad AF3 stepper and focus ring. The goal is portability, and I have the motor and controller bolted to a guide-scope shoe that can be easily added or removed from the scope. I 3D printed a tension adjustment bracket--that's the gray half-cylinder piece on the opposite side of the handle.
