SOLD - 2" Moonlite CF Focuser for Refractor - Black with Shaft Lock

Recommended Posts

iPeace    2,455

*** SOLD ***

Bought this from a fellow stargeezer just over a year ago; had grand plans for a scope which could use this as a retro-fit but they never came to fruition. I kept it on as a spare and as such things go, it's just hung around, nicely wrapped and ready for action but the call never came. Now, it's time to find it a good home.

Black 2" Moonlite CF focuser for refractor, shaft lock model.

Comes - just as I bought it - with the flange for a Meade 5000 series 80mm triplet; flanges for other scopes are readily available. (FLO)

Double finder dovetail shoes and 1.25" reducer included.

Looking for £180 posted to UK. Please do try to tempt me with your offer. :happy11:

PayPal friends accepted.

Please PM with any queries.

Thanks for looking.

Wow, that's beautiful and would be a good fit for my 80ED but little over my budget.

 

Good luck for the sale

I don't think there's a link, you'll have to shoot them an e-mail.

      With my eye on an Equinox 120 ED, I am wondering if it's focuser can take an Astro Physics diagonal + ES 40mm Maxview total close to 2kg if not more - sort of challenge for any focuser bar imaging kit. 
      The Featherlite is almost half the price of scope again!

      Do somebody using Dual-Speed SCT focuser for Cassegrain?
      Read about it and all of users say the same-it's a huge improvement.
      Can anyone share your experience with me in case?
      I found one on FLO - MoonLite CS Dual-Speed SCT Crayford ,looks impressive.

      Hey all, doesn't anyone have a link to something that shows how to fix focuser slop/play using ptfe tape? Specifically something that includes pictures or diagrams? I see people here on SGL mention using this method to help, but no one actually explains how it's done. Thanks!

      Hello,
      I am looking to upgrade the focuser of my SkyWatcher 80ED to resurrect it and use, along with an extension tube, for some night sky photography, if any body has a dual speed focuser for sale to fit my refractor I will be glad to evaluate offers.
      Has to be willing to ship to EU
       
      Thank uyou
