Astromania 2" Helical Micro Focuser with M48-thread and 0.1mm Scale for Telescope - sharper planets in any telescope
Astromania 2" helical focuser - sharper planets in any
telescope One of the biggest challenges in photographing the Moon and planets
is precise focusing of the object. Not all telescopes are well equipped for
this. Equipping your telescope with the Astromania 2" helical focuser is quick
and straightforward, and you will then always be able to find the perfect
point of focus. Astromania 2" Helical Micro Focuser with M48-thread and 0.1mm
Scale for Telescope - sharper planets in any telescope The screw-less focuser
for your telescope - it simply slides in Many telescopes have a focuser which
does not allow very precise focusing. Especially difficult jobs such as
focusing on a planet can be a real challenge. This helical focuser elegantly
overcomes the problem. It is suitable for both refractors and Newtonian
telescopes, but is also particularly useful with Schmidt-Cassegrain
telescopes. You need to do nothing more than to connect it to your existing
focuser. Sharper focused planets via the helical mechanism Once the helical
focuser is attached, simply turn the oversized focusing knob - which you can
control easily even with gloves on in winter. The rotating mechanism allows
very smooth and continuous focusing, and without any play. Your new focuser
does exactly what you tell it to. Setting scale - for finding the optimal
focus position again A graduated scale always shows you the focus position you
have just set. Once you've found the perfect point of focus, then you just
need to remember this setting on the scale - you will then always be able to
find it in future. The scale itself is similar to the millimetre markings on a
ruler, but each marking here moves the focuser by only around 0.1 mm. Read
more Suitable for all 2" focusers/M48 thread for your camera The helical
focuser has a 2" barrel. This allows it be inserted into the focuser just like
an eyepiece. Its separate focusing mechanism now takes over the job of
precision focusing. The accessory side of the focuser has a M48 thread for
connecting your camera. Read more
