The MicroTouch Autofocuser is designed to work with the popular Feathertouch line of focusers from Starlight Instruments. The MicroTouch allows autofocusing of a CCD camera when interfaced with a computer (via USB). Included features also include Temperature Compensation, Digital Readout, and Manual Operation. The MicroTouch works with both regular Feathertouch (Crayford-style or rack-and-pinion) focusers and the Feathertouch SCT MicroFocusers.


  • Automatic focus with ASCOM-compatible software (FocusMax, MaxIm DL, ImagesPlus, etc)*
  • Temperature compensation using built-in thermistor
  • All electronics in single hand-controller box -- no separate hub and extra cables
  • Manual control with hand-controller box for use visually or with video cameras/webcams
  • MicroTouch software for configuring system and remote manual operation

* Note: Autofocusing with FocusMax requires MaxIm DL or CCDSoft for camera control interface.
