Fine Focusing

Recommended Posts

Hi all

clear lastnight (about time) and saturn is looking even better than lastime, but at high magnification the focuser is a pain the slitest touch and it is out of focus and it takes an age to refocus again, so can someone recomend a fine focuser for my 10" dob, as I have no idea of whot are the goodones and whot ars the badones for my scope. thankyou all Andy.:rolleyes:

A simple stopgap is to improvise a lever or 'wand' to 'extend' the knob. It allows you to make smaller movements.
An old coffee jar lid glued to the focuser wheel works well. Doesn't look pretty but, hey, it's dark out there (unless you're a solar observer) Edited by brianb
