Which focuser ?

Recommended Posts

Looking to change the focuser on my sct for planetary this year . What would people recommend between the badder steeltrack, feathertouch Crayford and moonlight focuser ?

They are all pretty good :icon_biggrin:

I have a Feathertouch crayford on my 130 refractor and Moonlites on my other scopes. I really like them all but I have to say that the Feathertouch is probably the best focuser that I've ever used.

Is planetary worth investing heavily in over the next couple of years though, I wonder ?. Their positions are just so inconvenient from the UK :rolleyes2:

I think I'm descending order I would say FeatherTouch, Baader then Moonlite. I had a Baader SteelTrack with SteelDrive motor on my C8 for a while and thought it was excellent. Particularly for imaging you have the position readout and relatively easy PC control I think.
