Robo-Focus Timing pulley and Timing belt MXL

This is my new design to refine the focus below the 17.248µ microns according to my configuration for the Taka Epsilon 180 ED plus the Robo-focus, based on the Critical Focus Zone equation, CFS = fr squared x 2.2.


Taka Epsilon 180 ED have a f/2.8 squared x 2.2 = 17.248µ or 0.017248mm


The Robo-Focus unit coupled directly to the focuser shaft of the Epsilon 180, translates into approximately 25.400µ or 0.0254mm of drawtube motion.


So with this configuration I have a reduction of :1: 2.44, thus I have  0.00040µ or 0.00000040mm, now I can  work within the theoretical focus zone.

 

The pulleys and belts were purchased on line from (http://www.indarbelt.es/html/main.htm) for about 26 Euros included transport. Parts list as follows:

 

Timing pulley primary with flange: 18 MXL 025 (Robofocus motor).

Timing pulley secondary with flange: 44 MXL 025 (drawtube focuser).

Timing belt: 96 MXL 025 (96 means the total lenght belt in mm).
