That would be a handy thing, I have a Celestron focus motor on my C925 but they did not include a temperature sensor in those and temperature changes are the most critical thing to refocus for with that scope, The ZWO documentation does not say it (Or did not when I bought mine for my ED72) but they do have one.

I thinks itís one of the most cost effective solutions out there, and cloudy reviews are positive in the main, indicating high quality. I built an arduino focuser but got stuck at the housing/attaching stage. Iím looking forward to electronic focus. Iím going to opt for the kit with hand controller and temp sensor.

Theyíre a good bit of kit, gives me great focus every time.

FYI - you probably donít need the additional temp sensor unless you have a specific use for it. The inbuilt temp sensors works fine in my opinion and is sensitive enough to identify even a small temp change

No, Iím 100% computer controlled so have no need for a hand controller.

If youíre imaging with it Iím not sure why you would want a hand controller unless doing video feed
