JMI MotoFocus Kit for Celestron C8 SCT

The JMI MotoFocus consists of a friction-driven push-on motor that attaches easily to the Celestron C8 focus knob shaft and a variable speed hand controller that controls the motor to electronically focus the telescope.

With MotoFocus installed and a little practice at the controls, you will be able to make focus changes in increments that are far smaller than those made manually. Another benefit of electronic focusing is the ability to focus without actually touching the focus knob. This will result in less vibration, and that keeps your image stable…a benefit that is especially noticeable during astrophotography.

The JMI MotoFocus controller are powered by a single 9-Volt battery and offer electronic braking and variable speed control.
