The objective of this software project was to produce a simple and free ASCOM compliant focuser control client. The project key objectives were as follows :
- ASCOM compliant - Simple to use - Multirate focus control - Ability to configure up to eight separate filters - Multiple profiles available (five) - Profile description box - Over right protection - Text based setup file

The purpose of this software is two fold :
- To provide multirate focus control of any ASCOM compliant focuser
- To allow the user to configure multiple filters with reference to a predefined reference point, therefore allowing the user to move from filter to filter once the reference focus point is achieved.
The following is a short video demonstration of the focus manager tool. I hope the operation makes sense. If there is any confusion or something that I have not expained very well then please contact me and I will elaborate further. Rather than writing a lot of words I figured a video would be a better demonstration.
I have written a short operation manual for the software to compliment the video. This can be downloaded from :
