About this item

Featuring Uncompromised Quality and Craftsmanship for the Discriminating Amateur Astronomer...The Feather Touch Focuser is a premium Crayford-type focuser for Reflectors & Catadioptric Telescopes alike, while Mounting Base adapters are available for installing the focuser on the Rear Cells of Schmidt-Cassegrains, as well as on the Optical Tubes of Reflectors. To install the focuser on a telescope a Base Adapter is required in all cases.

The Feather Touch Focuser has been redesigned! Starlight built on their original and made it even better. All running parts are now HARDENED STAINLESS STEEL on HARDENED STAINLESS STEEL.

This greatly improves the smoothness, wear characteristics and it's robustness. This updated design will virtually not wear out and moves with even greater smoothness and precision than the original model.

It is still an absolute must for CCD imaging and astro-photography in addition to making visual use a joy.
