Moonlite Universal Installation Kit for CR Model Focusers for 6" Newtonian Tube
Moonlite Universal Install kits are designed for the MoonLite CR model focusers. Fits all 5", 6",8", 10", 12", 14" and 16" Newtonian scopes such as Orion, Sky Watcher, Celestron , Vixen, GSO, Meade Light bridge, DBA, Hardin, Antares, Parks, and Astro Tech.
This product listing is for the 6" version, but other sizes can be ordered as well, please contact us for details.
The Universal install kits feature up to 9 sets of tapped holes matching all of the popular bolt patterns used on Newtonian telescopes today. The install kit uses an aluminum 4" by 4" curve adapter plate drilled and tapped on both sides with 10-32 bolts on the top and smaller #5-40 bolts on the bottom. 1" and 1/2" aluminum riser spacer blocks and all spare bolts are included. The aluminum curve adapter plate bolts to the OTA from the bottom using small 5-40 cap head bolts, while the focuser bolts onto the curve adapter from the top using our standard 10-32 size bolts. It is an easy direct "bolt on" replacement. No need to drill new holes!
Install kits come in many different curve sizes...
Example a 12" kit has a diameter of 14" machined in to the base. The kit includes a 1" and 1/2" spacer that allows 4 different mounting positions for the focuser to operate at. The included spacers can be discarded if the user wants to mount the focuser in the lowest possible position, however in most cases the spacer will be needed to allow the low profile MoonLite focuser to match the original focusers height requirements. The install kit, with the ability to stack different spacers, provides flexibility to mount the focuser at any height required. Most customers pick the 2" travel Compression style draw tube when selecting the focuser configuration along with this installation kit.
Additional 1/4", 1/2" and 1" spacers are available separately as a special order if a special mounting height is required.
Please note: The install kit does not work with focusers that use the MoonLite swing filter option.
