Optec engineers designed the Sagitta Off-Axis Guider for manual or remote motorized use. The primary helical focus knob is an anodized 80-tooth gear which allows direct engagement of the #19349 Sagitta motor.
This motor, when combined with the #19690 FocusLynx Controller, allows for remote control and automated focus of the Sagitta OAG. This provides a unique solution for remote imagers who require the ability to adjust the guide camera focuser independently from the main camera.
NOTE: Optec’s #19340 Sagitta OAG includes this motor. Separate purchase is ONLY required for owners of the manual version #19342 Sagitta wishing to add the motor feature to their Off-Axis Guider. The motor require the #19690 FocusLynx Controller to provide control of the focuser.
