EAF Temperature Probe

Post by CraigG » Mon Dec 30, 2019 10:58 am

Hello!

I received an EAF advanced kit as a Christmas gift and I'm very pleased with it's ease of installation and operation on my Stellarvue SV70T. I'm currently controlling it with the SharpCap imaging program via ASCOM. I was wondering if there are any image acquisition programs that you know of that currently use the temperature probe data to maintain focus automatically during an imaging session?

Thank you!

Craig

Thanks Katherine...I have a follow up question for you. I'm so pleased with how the EAF is working on my Stellarvue SV70T that I want to buy another one to attach to my Stellarvue SV105. It has a Feather Touch focuser by Starlight Instruments and I was wondering if you can confirm that the EAF will fit that focuser? The FT focuser was made around 2009.

Picture attached...thanks!

Could you remove the screws on the focuser and fix the EAF adapter to the focuser with another screw?

Yes, these screws are removable. I just wanted to know if the EAF mounting bracket has the proper hole spacing and shape to conform to this focuser. Thanks!

You can refer to the mechanical drawing on this page to confirm the space.
