View Full Version here: : Temperature Compensation Coefficient for RoboFocus and FSQ85 EDX
12-08-2012, 02:34 PM
Has anyone calculated this coefficient? Apparently it's reasonably consistent from scope to scope of the same make/model.
I'm setting up an FSQ85EDX for use with RoboFocus and knowing this figure will save me a fair bit of messing about.

Peter, I'm in the same boat with my TOA. I suspect that the US forums might be more helpful. How about trying the massive FocusMax User Group, search 'FMaxUG (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/FMaxUG/)' in Yahoo Groups.
Otherwise, Techincal Innovations may have that coefficient info on file for various scopes, a long shot, but worth an email.
Not sure how you're faring with the RoboFocus Control Program (RFCP) but I'm having one hell of a time setting it up! Will probably start a new post with questions there, so if you have insights, please contribute!

Logan, Peter's in Sth America just now and currently has an FLI pdf on the scope.

Well, that answers that! Oh well, I'll start a new thread. Thx for the heads up Robin.

There is an after market motor that works with robofocus. As I remember it has twice the resolution and maybe 3 times the grunt. I'll see if I can find it.
Found it in this thread (http://www.iceinspace.com.au/forum/showthread.php?t=81519) :-

I'd be interested in this co-efficient for a Tak FSQ106N if anyone has that.
I know I should measure it myself - just being lazy really

Robin, saw that link. Thanks. Will run with my new motor for now, plenty of oomph for SLR setup :)

I got 3.442 although the temperature range that particular night was less than 10C. Ill be doing it again in winter.
