The #19765 QuickSync MEF motor with built-in clutch mechanism and temperature sensor allows both manual and motorized control with a simple twist of the motor housing.
Designed especially for the Takahashi MEF Dual-Speed focusers, the QuickSync MEF features simple installation and an elegant design. The QuickSync motors are fully compatibility with the FocusLynx Control Hub making QuickSync the very best choice for motorizing any Takahashi telescope with the dual-speed MEF (Micro-Edge Focuser).
This version requires the external Optec FocusLynx controller. If you would prefer the fully integrated solution consider the ThirdLynx model.
For more add on accessories including the FocusLynx Controller, Hand Controller, and WiFi see the FocusLynx Accessories.
Older Takahashi rack-and-pinion focusers may have an original MEF with two silver knobs rather than a black fine-focus knob. The black knob MEF has a 7:1 reduction and is manufactured in Japan by Takahashi, while the early silver version was made in the U.S.A and features a 10:1 reduction. If your focuser is the U.S. version with silver knobs, be sure to specify the #19765-US item.
