The Moonlite driver did recognize it and connected, but nothing worked. Couldn't change focus, it couldn't read the temperature, etc.

I tried to contact the maker again, but with no luck.

Assuming nothing changes, I strongly suggest NOT buying this focuser - which is a shame, because it is a neat unit, bundled with the dew heater controller as well.

Thanks for giving it a try. At least it connected to the Moonlite driver, thats a start.
Did you actually manage to contact the supplier or was there no reply.
I did contact him about a year or so ago and he did not think it was worth the amount of time involved in developing a driver for the amount of sales he would receive in return.

Knro mentioned if the supplier will release documented protocol then developing a driver wouldn't be too difficult.
I will try to contact him again and ask if he is willing to release the information on the protocol.
