About the Moonlite CS Model SCT Focuser - Standard Model...

The Moonlite CS Model SCT Focuser - Standard Model format focusers features 7 different drawtube travel options and comes with an 2" to 1 1/4" adapter. They feature a 3 thumbscrew brass compression ring style clamping systems for heavy load applications.

 

The Moonlite CS Model SCT Focuser - Standard Model comes with many different knob or motor options. The dual rate version uses a 1.5" Tri-knob configuration with a 8 to 1 reduction unit for great lifting capacity while retaining extremely smooth focus 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 new style of shaft lock system.

 

Many motor options are available to the Moonlite CS Model SCT Focuser - Standard Model as well. A DC motor version with hand controller for visual use or our popular "High Res stepper motor option" for extreme imaging needs requiring very fine repeatability and temp compensation using any ASCOM software. The new 2-Speed stepper motor controller has a DRO display allowing great precision for both Manual and PC automated operation. As of this time Moonlite makes 16 flange sizes allowing the focuser to fit all Meade SCTs, Celestron SCTs, Vixen VMC260, TAK Mewlon, Questar, RC scopes, and Lunt and Coronado solar scopes. They make a special version for imagers that gives the CS model focuser the unique ability to hold a focal reducer inside the focuser. Add custom anodized color options for a perfect, one of a kind focuser to match your specific requirements. For heavy imaging requirements, please consider the CSL 2.5" large format heavy duty focuser.
