Optec’s #19787 DirectSync SW25 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 Sky-Watcher Esprit series telescope 2-1/2-inch Dual-Speed focusers, the DirectSync SW25 features simple installation and an elegant design. The DirectSync motors are fully compatibility with the FocusLynx Control Hub making DirectSync the very best choice for motorizing Sky-Watcher’s premier astrograph telescopes.
For the larger Esprit APO’s with the 3″ focuser, see our DirectSync SW30.
This version requires the external Optec FocusLynx controller. If you would prefer the fully integrated solution consider the ThirdLynx model.
