Product Details

 

The modular design of the CS 2" format Crayford focuser makes it easy to be configured for many different scopes. Just pick the options you need in these 4 categories: Flange, Drawtube, Focus knob/motor, and Color. Scroll to the bottom of this page to see all of the options. Please note we make 7 different size focusers for  SCTs/ RCs. The CS 2" format focuser is perfect for Visual use or light imaging setups. The CS 2" format model uses a 2" comp ring for all connection to cameras, etc. For an all threaded style connection, please consider the CSL 2.5" large format model as it uses a 68mm thread system.

  • CS 2" Format Crayford - Capacity 5 lbs
  • CHL 2.5" EDGE Crayford  - Capacity 6 lbs
  • CSL 2.5" large Format Crayford -Capacity 7 lbs
  • CXL 3.6" large Capacity Crayford- Capacity 10 lbs
  • NiteCrawler 2.5" Rotating worm drive - Capacity 25 lbs
  • NiteCrawler 3.0" Rotating worm drive - Capacity  30 lbs
  • NiteCrawler 3.5" Rotating worm drive - Capacity 35 lbs

We offer the CS 2" format focuser in many configurations. Everything from single rate configuration for customers that may all ready have a motor to install on it, to our popular dual rate 8 to 1 reduction unit for visual use, and our many types of motor systems for fully automated focus. There are many different draw tube travels and configurations to match just about any scope's requirements. Our collimatable mounting flanges provide adjustability  for achieving mechanical centerline collimation. Our shaft lock option provides focus lock with no image shift. Custom anodized colors and custom machining (by request) make for a perfect custom focuser to match your OTA. For Customers with EDGE scopes, please see the CHL 2.5" thin model made just for EDGE 8", 9.25" and 11/14" OTAs. For customers imaging with large cameras or using large loads, please look at the CSL 2.5" large format focuser.  For customers with very large imaging systems or full remote automation requirements, Please consider the CXL or Nitecrawler rotating focuser models shown here:

 

We also provide a (focal reducer) version for 8" and 9 1/4" SCTs that have the smaller 2" SCT threaded visual back. We made a special 2-part split flange system to support a focal reducer installed inside the focuser. This special design allows it to fit on SCTs that have the smaller 2" SCT threaded back. The installation procedure requires the user to remove the bottom rotating flange part, then install the focal reducer by threading it in to the drawtube. The flange is then reattached to the focuser and the focuser can then be installed on the scope.


Flanges:

MoonLite manufactures many different size flanges for the CS model focuser that fit all SCTs, Vixen, Tak Mewlon, Questar, RC, Lunt and Coronado solar telescopes. Please use the pull down menu to select the flange located at the bottom of this page. All flange options are free

 

The rotating flange is made up of 2 parts. An upper flange part that attaches to the focuser body with 3 bolts and a lower threaded flange part that matches the SCT's visual back threads. We make 2 versions of the lower flange part. A regular profile version and a tall Focal reducer style version. The flanges come in 3 thread sizes, 2" SCT thread for 8" and 9 1/4" scopes, 3 1/4" large thread for 10" ,12" and 14" scopes, plus a 4" thread size for Meade 16" SCTs. All 2-part flanges have a rotating ability with a lock knob providing camera angle adjustment plus collimation adjustment ability.

There are 2 category of flanges to consider (Regular profile, and FR style). The regular profile flanges are as short as possible and do not support a focal reducer installed inside the focuser, while the tall Focal Reducer style flanges have a pocket /space for the focal reducer to move in side the flange area. Basically the regular profile flanges are for visual use and the taller focal reducer flanges are for Imaging use. However the focal reducer does not have to be installed, so the tall focal reducer style flange can be picked if the scope is to be used for both visual and imaging.

The flanges come in 4 thread sizes for SCTs, 2" SCT thread size, 3 1/4" Celestron thread size, 3 1/4" Meade thread size, and 4" thread size for Meade 16" scopes. The 2" SCT thread flange is for 8" and 9 1/4" SCTs. The 3 1/4" Celestron threaded flanges fit 11" and 14" Celestron visual backs and the new 9 1/4" Celestron Edge. The 3 1/4" Meade threaded flanges fit Meade 10" ,12" and 14" Meade Visual backs. We also make some specialty flange thread sizes for Vixen, Tak Mewlon, AT RCs, and Questar scopes.

It is important to pick a matching drawtube and flange combination when configuring the MoonLite focuser. All tall focal reducer style flanges require that the .95" travel FR threaded drawtube be picked if a traditional 6.3 or 3.3 focal reducer is to be used. The tall focal reducer flange types and the .95" drawtube are matched pairs that provide the most travel with still providing room in the focuser for a 6.3 focal reducer to be installed. This matched combination is for imagers that need to use a focal reducer. However the optional long 1.5" travel drawtube can be combined with the tall focal reducer flange , but it would not allow any focal reducer to be used.

The regular profile flanges in the 3 1/4" thread size use the 1.15" travel comp ring drawtube. The regular profile flange is ideal for visual users that will not need to use a focal reducer. The regular profile 2" size threaded flange does end up using the .95" travel FR style drawtube, but no focal reducer can be installed with this short flange version.

Remember Meade 8", Celestron 8", and Celestron 9 1/4" SCTs only have the smaller 2" SCT threaded visual back. The large 3 1/4" flanges can not be used on these scopes that have the smaller 2" SCT threaded back! The exception is the New 9.25" Celestron EDGE model that now has the larger 3 1/4" threaded visual back. Please note all Celestron EDGE scope 9.25" and larger should use the 3 1/4" Celestron regular profile flange and matching 1.15" travel compression ring drawtube. Celestron has not released a focal reducer spec for the EDGE scopes as of this time. We are getting ready to release a new CSL 2.5" larger format focuser that has an adjustable Focal reducer position system. This new CSL model will be Ideal for the Edge scopes and can hold any brand focal reducer such as the popular Lupus reducer that customers are starting to us on Edge design SCTs.

Please note: The focuser models designed for Focal reducers are intended for Imaging, it is recommended that the focal reducer be removed from the focuser for Visual use. The design places the focal reducer in the sweet spot distance from the focal reducer to the imaging system, between 2 1/2" and 3 1/2". If a diagonal is used then the distance between the focal reducer and an EP may be too great and traditional EPs may not come in to focus. A diagonal adds a few inches to the image train. Please see the flange text below to double check that you are picking the best matching drawtube for the flange required.

  • The 2" SCT thread regular profile flange fits Meade 8" and Celestron's 8" and 9 1/4" scopes. The best matched drawtube option is the .95" travel comp ring FR version drawtube.
