Starlight Instruments FTF3015B-A Feather Touch 3.0" Diameter Dual Speed Rack and Pinion Focuser
FTF3015B-A---Feather Touch® 3.0" Diameter Dual Speed Focuser, 1.5" Draw tube travel, and Brake
According to our experience, the Feather Touch are one of the best focusers in the world.
Recommended for 10" and 12" RC telescopes!
The bearings are made of hardened stainless steel, making operation smooth and enhancing durability and lifitng capacity. Especially for CCD and analog use, this focuser is a real gem of highest quality.
Important note: unless you already have these, normally you would also need a telescope side adapter to be able to attach the focuser to your telescope and you would also need a drawtube end cap. We would normally stock the 2" adapter that comes with a compression ring. This focuser is popular choice for RC telescopes therefore we would usually keep the A30-1903-40 telescope side adapter in stock, but if you need a different option, please contact us!
Before you choose the correct adapters, please click on the RELATED PRODUCTS tab and click on that adapter, then on the page showing the product description of the adapter you will find a stock indicator (red/yellow/green bubble). If it's red please contact us to check availability or ETA.
