Is focusing possible with RCX400 focuser?


#1

I am wondering whether I might try the focuser option with my RCX400. This is comparable to the LX200GPS scope but has a built-in focuser. It works in a different way to ‘normal’ focusers. When the scope is powered up, you need to ‘remind’ it of the last focus setting (eg., F8-CCD) and then it can remember any other pre-defined settings (eg., Barlow-CCD, or F8-eyepiece).
Any thoughts before I try connecting? I’m not optimistic on this one!

Lawerence, it needs to be a absolute focuser per ASCOM. If it’s not, it won’t work.
