The FocusLynx DirectSync SVX system is an aftermarket add-on for the 2.5" and 3" R&P ZTA Focusers used by the APM 107/700, Tecnosky 100Q, 130 and TS 80/500 to name but a few. This new design does not use an external controller as the electronics for this are now integrated into the motor unit which includes a built in temperature sensor. The DirectSync SVX motor provides a direct drive motor that can be easily disengaged for manual focusing. The DirectSync SVX motor kit is easy to install and provides a digital focusing solution that also allows manual focus when at the telescope.

The DirectSync SVX package was designed especially for the 2.5" and 3" ZTA focusers. It features a direct gearing system that leaves the planetary reduction assembly and unique tensioning system intact, DirectSync SVX can achieve greater positional repeatability and carry imaging camera packages in excess of 5 kg (11-lbs)!

The motor can be used in both manual and automatic focusing modes. It is fully ASCOM compliant and can work in conjunction with higher level client software such as FocusMax and Maxim D/L as well as CCDSoft and TheSky X to provide auto-focusing for a wide variety of manual focusers.
