Atlas Focuser


#1

Does the Atlas Focuser work well with SGP?
Does SGP report the Absolute step value or the Relative step value?
Many thanks, Rick


#2

Yes. The absolute step.


#3

Great, thank you. And if inadvertently, the focuser reaches its limit (I understand that would take a long time even if started at the middle, as the steps are so small), does the step counter go no further? My current starlight instrument step counter doesn’t stop if the limit of the telescope’s focuser is reached it continues counting as though it was still focusing. I assume that since it has an absolute reading, it stops.

Also, is there an auto shut off on the focuser when it reaches its limit so the focuser isn’t damaged?

Thanks again, Rick
