The Seletek Platypus is an automation controller than can control 3 devices at once, and is compatible with a huge range of equipment (focusers, filter wheels, rotators etc). For full details of what this observatory class controller can do, google search for Lunatico Seletek Platypus. Below are some of the main specs. Connection with a computer is by USB or Ethernet.

In addition, this is a special version of the Platypus custom made for CFF telescopes that has a built in 4-port dew controller (the "ZeroDew" of Lunatico).

The Platypus has an internal temperature sensor, but I also am including an external temperature probe. Also included are 4 db9 connectors that you can use to wire up your equipment. These db9 connectors are screw mount so it is easy to change wires etc. Currently they are wired with RJ45 tips because that's what I needed to control my focuser motors, but the wires can be easily changed to accommodate your needs.

The Platypus has only been used a handful of times and is in perfect/new condition. You are basically getting a new Platypus for 75% of the retail cost, PLUS a free ZeroDew controller and external temp probe.

$225 plus shipping (international buyers welcome too).

Feel free to ask any questions.
