FeatherTouch Micro Focuser for Celestron HD8" / CPC800 / NexStar 6 - 8 / C8

Optec FT20 (#1317515)

The Starlight Instruments SCT/HD Micro Focuser provides the smoothest control for fine focusing. Two focus knobs allow for standard or 1/10th-speed focusing, making the MicroFocuser extremely accurate. Excellent for both imaging or visual observing, this focuser is precision-machined and anodized black with a brass fine-focus knob.

The FeatherTouch Micro Focuser can even be motorized, if required. We distribute the products of OPTEC for this purpose. The FT20 motor unit (# 1317515) by OPTEC is suitable for all FTM 1/10 reduction ratios.

Important:

If your telescope is less than a few years old, check the style of the back cell to see which version of the FeatherTouch® SCT Micro Focuser you need:
