COMPLETED - SOLD Skywatcher Focuser for Startravel-102/120/150, Evostar-102/120/150 and Evostar-80ED/100ED/120ED Refractors


Recommended Posts

Hi there,  

This is the standard Skywatcher focuser from a Startravel 150.  I believe the flange will fit Startravel-102/120/150, Evostar-102/120/150 and Evostar-80ED/100ED/120ED Refractors, but not the smaller 80mm non-EDs.

As you can see it has seen very little use, having been replaced by an aftermarket Crayford.  It's got a built in Synta shoe.  No screws included (they should be on the relevant scope already). Works smoothly.

If yours is damaged, this is what you need.  Likely useful for project builds too.

£24 plus postage.

Do you have any idea if this can fit the vintage Celestron FS 80mm 910mm f/11.3?

Thanks!

Hi there, this focuser has a flange outer diameter of  97mm.  So if the inside of the scope's opening is 97mm, then it would fit.  No idea about your particular scope's measurements myself, I've never actually held one.

Saw a nice mini scope project made with this.

Out of interest, where did you find a lens to suit?  Also, I imagine the F ratio is pretty low and the CA somewhat... significant?!
