The ESATTO 2" low-profile robotic focuser is a remarkable accessory designed to seamlessly integrate with the Celestron EdgeHD 8" telescope. It doesn't obstruct functionality of the lock and focus knobs on the primary mirror, thus keeping ample backfocus to attach a camera without affect performance of the optical tube primary mirror.

PrimaLuceLab - ESATTO 2" LP Low Profile Robotic Focuser

Features

  • ESATTO 2" LP is a small and lightweight robotic focuser mechanically designed and fitted to be compatible with Celestron 8" EdgeHD OTA.
  • It has a slim body thickness of only 32mm, allowing it to work without obstructing or interfering with the lock and focus knobs on the primary mirror.
  • The motorized focuser provides a 50.9mm free aperture, enabling attachment of imaging gear up to 11 pounds, suitable for larger cameras with a filter wheel attached.
  • It includes various ports and connectivity interfaces, such as a USB-C port for connection to the EAGLE system or a Windows PC, an ARCO port for adding a rotator and field de-rotator, a 12V power port, a temperature probe port, and WiFi connectivity for remote control via the Virtual HandPad on a smartphone or tablet.
  • Comes with PrimaLuceLab's PLAY astrophotography software, which allows easy capturing of images. The software can be configured by selecting the optical tube and mount with ASCOM drivers (6.5 or later) and offers focus control using ESATTO or PrimaLuceLab Sesto Senso 2, as well as camera rotation control using the ARCO. Additional features are unlocked when using an EAGLE which is recommended!
  • The low-profile ESATTO versions were specifically designed to be compatible with EdgeHD optical tubes, and the 2" version is ideal for the 8" EdgeHD Optical Tube Assembly. This allows installation or connection of a 0.7x reducer without interference with the primary lock and focus knobs, providing adequate backfocus space (105mm) for connecting imaging gear and accessories like the ARCO or field de-rotator.
  • ESATTO has a dedicated port for direct connection with ARCO, allowing the user to adjust rotation angle for capturing images of observed objects. It can also de-rotate the field when using an alt-az mount without the need for an equatorial wedge. When combined with the 2" ARCO, the 2" LP Esatto and ARCO create a rotating focuser with a thickness of 54.2mm and a free aperture of 50.9mm.

Compact Low Profile Focuser Design

The ESATTO 2" low-profile robotic focuser is a small and lightweight important accessory that has been manufactured to fit with Celestron EdgeHD 8" telescope without obstructing or interfeing the lock and focus knobs on the primary mirror. With a slim body thickness of only 32mm, this motorized focuser provides 50.9mm free aperture, allowing attachment of imaging gear up to 11 pounds, enough for larger cameras with a filter wheel.

Easy To Use Interface

The PrimaLuceLab ESATTO 2" LP low-profile focuser includes numerous ports and connectivity interfaces controlling devices. The USB-C port connects to the EAGLE system or a regular Windows PC. The ARCO port, enabling the addition of the rotator and field de-rotator. The ESATTO 2" LP also includes a 12V power port, a temperature probe port, and WiFi connectivity, which allows remote control through the Virtual HandPad. Last but not least, a dimmable status LEDs for visual status is included.

Compatible with PrimaLuceLab PLAY Software

ESATTO 2" LP includes PrimaLuceLab's PLAY astrophotography software that makes capturing images of the cosmos a breeze! There are no constraints for the user as far a telescope, mounts or other accessories to use the software, and it can be configured by simply selecting the optical tube and mount with ASCOM drivers (6.5 or later) and enables focus control using ESATTO or PrimaLuceLab Sesto Senso 2 as well as camera rotation control using the ARCO. For basic use of the PLAY software, either the ESATTO or Sesto Senso is required but more features are unlocked when adding an EAGLE into the mix!

Works Well with Celestron's EdgeHD 8" Optical Tube Assembly

One of the key incentives PrimaLuceLab designed the low profile ESATTO versions is compatibility with EdgeHD optical tubes, and in the case of the 2" version, specifically for the 8" EdgeHD Optical Tube Assembly. This essentially allows more wiggle room to install or connect a 0.7x reducer since there is no interference and obstruction of the primary lock and focus knobs. This allows plenty of backfocus space (105mm to be exact) to connect imaging gear as well as a ARCO 2" or field de-rotator. The resolution of the Esatto 2" LP is 0.03 microns per step!

Connect with PrimaLuceLab ARCO Rotator

ESATTO has a dedicated port that allows for a direct connection with ARCO, PrimaLuceLab's camera rotator as well as a field de-rotator. By using ARCO, the user can adjust rotation of the angle to achive the position desired to take images of the object being observed. When using an alt-az mount, ARCO can de-rotate the field without requiring an wedge. In essense, combing the 2" LP Esatto with the 2" ARCO results in a rotating focuser only 54.2mm thick and free aperture of 50.9mm.
