The ESATTO robotic focuser was born from our extensive experience in astrophotography and engineered with the uncompromising quality of PrimaLuceLab....creating the best motorized focuser in the world, with all the latest technical features, resulting in a compact and beautiful design only 67mm of thickness and 50.9mm of free aperture.

The special Crayford design with 18 ball bearings allows ESATTO 2” to have an impressive 5 kgs (11 lb) payload capacity with the focusing smoothness that is required by modern astrophotography techniques (e.g., autofocusing with V-curve). ESATTO 2” has a draw tube with 50.9mm of free aperture, and 15mm of travel, offering to an incredible read resolution of 0.04 microns per step!

You don’t need to worry on how to connect ESATTO to your telescope. You can choose among the many models and adapters available! You can easily connect ESATTO 2” to telescopes like Schmidt-Cassegrains, Aplanatic Schmidt-Cassegrains, refractors, Cassegrains, Newtonians, and more! ESATTO truly is the universal focuser and if you can’t find an adapter for your telescope, just contact us!

ESATTO has built-in WiFi remote control capability so you can control it from any smartphone, tablet or computer! Just connect your device to the WiFi network of ESATTO and start the app. You will be able to control the focuser by using the dedicated ESATTO Virtual HandPad app. Thanks to convenient preset settings, you can easily record and move the focuser to specific predetermined positions . Great for visual use! WiFi control works even if ESATTO is also connected to a computer so you can control it simultaneously from 2 devices.

A perfect focuser is nothing without a solid connection to the camera. That's why, instead of using a normal 2" visual back, ESATTO 2" offers a M56x1 male thread (to let you attach SkyWatcher/Orion reducers for ED 80, 100 and 120 refractors) and, through a complete series of optional camera adapters with stop ring, it allows you to directly connect the most common DSLR, mirrorless and CCD or CMOS cooled cameras directly at the focuser. The stop ring allows you to lock the camera at a precise angle to better frame the object to be photographed. The stop ring adapters are available in many different sizes: this way you can connect, with maximum rigidity and comfort, any camera or accessory.

ESATTO includes a special port allowing ARCO, the camera rotator and field de-rotator, to be directly connected. With ARCO, you can remotely control the rotation angle of your camera in order to achieve perfect framing of the object you want to record. If you have an alt-az mount, you can use ARCO to de-rotate the field without the need of an equatorial wedge! ESATTO and ARCO are designed to work together. You will need only one short interconnect between the two!
