About the Moonlite 2.5" Large Format Crayford Refractor Focuser - Standard Model...

The Moonlite 2.5" Large Format Crayford Refractor Focuser - Standard Model is well suited for both imaging and visual use with its large 2.5" ID drawtube design and high pressure double bearing crayford configuration for extra lifting capacity. The focuser comes standard with our large 1.5" Tri-knob dual rate 8 to 1 reduction unit for great lifting capacity while retaining extremely smooth focuser ability. Moonlite added a new shaft lock system to the left knob allowing the focusers position to be locked using a micro compression ring clamp on the left knob. This type of lock does not push against the draw tube like other lock systems do. There is no image shift with this style of shaft lock system, perfect for imaging set ups maintaining critical focus.

 

The Moonlite 2.5" Large Format Crayford Refractor Focuser - Standard Model also comes with 4 different motor options. A DC motor version with Rigel hand controller for visual use, or the popular "High Res stepper motor option" with the choice of 2 different controllers for extreme imaging needs requiring very fine repeatability and temp compensation using any ASCOM software.

 

Moonlite now offers different drawtubes styles for the Moonlite 2.5" Large Format Crayford Refractor Focuser - Standard Model. Customers can pick the traditional 3 thumbscrew compression ring drawtube, or the New 68mm threaded top drawtube option. Either drawtube version include both an 2.5" to 2" adapter and a 2.5" to 1 1/4" adapter at no extra charge. Drawtubes come in two lengths, a 4.5" travel length and a 3" travel length. Plus they make a special Vixen field flattener drawtube option that enables the existing Vixen field flattener to be installed inside the drawtube, and a TAK 72mm X .75 threaded drawtube for customers wishing to use there existing TAK accessories.
