Moonlite CS Model Single Speed Crayford Focuser for 2" SC with 0.95" Travel, Focal Reducer Drawtube & Brass Compression Ring - RED Colour
This is a high precision Moonlite CS Model Single Speed Crayford Focuser for 8" and 9.25" Celestron or 8" Meade telescopes with 2" SC-thread.
Comes with 0.95" Travel, Focal Reducer Drawtube & Brass Compression Ring in RED Colour
2" to 1.25" reducer included.
The modular design of the CS 2" format Crayford focuser makes it easy to be configured for many different scopes. However, the vast range of configurations makes it nearly impossible to stock all variations here at 365Astronomy's premises, therefore we had to choose just the most popular combinations.
Other configurations are available on request.
ATTENTION! Single speed Moonlite focusers require a motor drive to be able to hold the payload, however if you wanted a Moonlite focuser without a motor drive, we'd recommend to go for a dual speed version with a clatch installed. Those models work without a motor drive.
FLANGE: 2" SCT-style with tall FR-style that allows a Celestron or Meade f/6.3 reducer to be installed inside the focuser, screwed into the end of the drawtube
DRAWTUBE: 0.95" travel, brass compression ring, FR-threaded (again, this is to allow installation of a Celestron or Meade f/6.3 focal reducer/corrector)
FOCUS KNOB / MOTOR DRIVE: single rate focuser, no motor drive, but motor drive is optional (we chose this version, because we also stock the motor drive. It makes sense to install the motor drive onto a single speed focuser rather than a dual speed, so why spend money on the dual speed version if you will use it eventually with a motor drive only)
Overall length to 2" Eyepiece holder end: 114mm (plus add drawtube travel)
Overall length to 1.25" Eyepiece holder end: 117mm (plus add drawtube travel)
Diameter at base: 100mm
Load capacity: 5 lbs (although we saw other dealers advertise it as 6lbs, we took this info from the manufacturer's website)
Above picture shows the flange that is threaded for 2" SC like Celestron 8" and 9.25" or Meade 8" SCT. Bear in mind, the overall diameter is 100mm, hence it is not compatible with smaller SCTs, like the 5" or 6" Celestron SCTs.
