Re: Which GTOCP* connection do you use?

Peter,

 

Actually not quite.  I had a conversation with Wayne Schroeder from Starlight Instruments several months ago where he explained that each company makes their own motors now.  It was originally supposed to be a product partnership between the two companies, but something changed.  And now Optec makes their motors and Starlight Instruments makes their own motors.  They’re almost identical and are interchangeable – but each company makes their own motors.

 

On the other hand, if I understood him correctly, Optec does indeed still make all the controllers – at least the internal electronics and firmware.  Starlight Instruments might make their own metal controller housings.  I’m not clear on that part.  But the systems are interchangeable.

Peter,

 

I believe Optec’s system is called Focuslynx and Starlight Instruments’ system is called Focus Boss.

Exactly same products, just different brandings and they are all made by Optec. Yes I got the model names backward but makes no difference.
