Please review the Focusmaster Autofocus Overview & Setup (PDF) and Focusmaster Operating Guide (PDF) documents to decide what components below you need to download. Those documents have the installation instructions. All software is Windows compatible.

Most non-Tele Vue-branded software requires the ASCOM drivers to operate the Focusmaster. The ASCOM Platform must be installed on your computer for these drivers to work.
  • Make sure to have the latest ASCOM platform from — the [DOWNLOAD] button is on the right of their front page.
  • Run the ASCOM Diagnostic tool that installs with the latest ASCOM platform (Locate in Windows 7: START Button > Search Programs and Files: ASCOM). After running it, click [View Last Log] file in the Diagnostic dialog and search for "Focusmaster" — all instances — to see if it found the driver and if there are any "fails". More info on using the Diagnostic Tool is on the ASCOM-Starndards FAQ.
