TOPIC: Motorize focusser

Motorize focusser 1 month 2 days ago #26590

Is it possible to install a motor on my 2" DUAL-SPEED LINEAR POWER FOCUSER (skywatcher 10 inch newton) and control it from Ekos?
Someone done that?
Any suggestions for a motor?

Regards,

Joshua

There are a few tutorials hanging around. My inspiration was here:
www.thingiverse.com/thing:2617278
I designed and 3d printed a mount for my dual speed focuser (refractor) to use a simple stepper motor and Arduino Nano.
I have a newer design that tidied up the wires a bit. The Moonlight module in Indi is used to control the focuser.
