Posi Drive Motor for SkyWatcher Esprit and Takahashi stock focusers

August 24, 2016

Starlight Instruments is proud to announce the release of our Posi Drive motor (PDMS) for the Sky Watcher Esprit telescopes as well as the Takahashi dual speed focusers.

The PDMS motors were designed to be controlled from the Focuser Boss II digital kit.  In testing, the PDMS is able to lift in excess of 56 pounds.  This motor attaches to the pinion shaft which eliminates slip from the reduction assembly.  This motor will allow you to have repeatability which will allow you more time to view and less time being frustrated.

Below are the links from the website.
