Now in the third generation, Optec's Perseus Instrument Selector GEN3 is the latest in multiple instrument automation. Perseus GEN3 features both USB/Serial and Ethernet communications with iPhone, iPad, and Android smartphone control. With a reliable U.S. made stepper motor from Lin Engineering and completely redesigned control circuit, the Perseus is more reliable than ever. A hard mechanical stop ensures repeatable positional accuracy with each port. Optec's Perseus GEN3 Instrument Selector is the undisputed standard for multiple instrument clusters attached to any observatory class telescope.

There are four instrument ports - three 2-inch ports and one 3-inch port available with the Perseus.   A large 3-inch (major diameter) diagonal mirror directs incoming light to any of the four available ports.  The embedded circuit has a single push button interface for use at the telescope and Ethernet and USB/Serial interfaces for remote control.  LED indicators show the currently selected instrument.
