Python Software for Astronomical Telescope Focus Control

In this version ...

PyFocus provides for local or remote operation of an astronomical telescope focuser. While specific to the hardware we use for the Shared Skies programs at Moore and Mt. Kent Observatories, PyFocus may be readily adapted to other hardware. Specifically the Phidgets servo controller will operate small 12VDC brushed motors that may be used for for other telescope instrumentation.
