I rebuild this motor focus with 3D printed parts. The coupler will be replaced with a metal one later. The electronics case is mounted where the finder scope was. Everything is working flawless. B)

Replied by Helge on topic Moonlite focuser protocol

Hi Craig,

I am not sure if useful, I followed those instructions when "rebuilding" the moonlite focuser - see this link:

github.com/Hansastro/Focuser

In the library for the LM335 (lm335-cpp), which is used here as sensor, the following formula is applied (to the end of the lib), maybe you can leverage:

return (500.0*analogRead(this->aquisitionPin)/1024.0) - 273.15;
