CPC 1100 Counterweight for GSO Crayford Focuser


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I wanted to ask if anyone has the experience of using a GSO Crayford or similar focuser or on a CPC 1100, and if a counterweight was needed to balance the OTA. I want to use it with a DSLR as well as 2" diagonal.

Well I have purchased and received the GSO Crayford style focuser. I tried it out last night and it seems to work okay without any kind or counterweight. I tried it with my 2" Baader diagonal and 8mm Hyperion eyepiece on Neptune. The absence of image shift and finer control when focusing is really convenient. I intend to try it for DSLR imaging next.
