Antares Crayford Rotatable Focuser Antares/GSO, CF2
The dual-speed Crayford focuser features a focus control with 1:1 and 10:1 speed ratios allowing superbly smooth and precise focusing at all magnifications. The focuser attaches to the telescope via four holes positioned in each corner of the mounting plate.
The focuser is fully (360 degrees)rotatable when fitted to the telescope. The focuser has adjustable tension and stiffness making it ideal for carrying heavier eyepieces and cameras. And allows the focus point to be locked by actually disengaging the focus control knob via a thumb knob. This is a beautifully engineered focuser and it functions every bit as well as it looks! There is absolutely no backlash and the adjustment can be super light-touch or stiff as you need it - but always with an ultra smooth feel.
Newtonian Crayford focuser, constructed of strong aluminum with a black anodized finish. The drawtube glides on 4 bearing with 1.6 inch travel, a built-in tension knob for adjusting the "feel" to match your preference to give zero image shift and zero backlash, with a second fine adjustment knob with a 10:1 ratio for ultra smooth and fine adjustment. The friction can be adjusted with a large thumbscrew. A second thumbscrew can lock the focuser tightly in position. Features 2 inch brass non-marring compression ring, an adaptor from 2" to 1.25" with brass non-marring compression ring and 2" filter thread.
