Moonlite Newton one speed focuser
Moonlite Model CR Newtonian Focusers
Moonlite's CR model focusers come in both single and dual rate versions. The dual rate version uses our popular 1.2" Tri-knob that is very smooth and is rated at 5 lb lifting capacity; Perfect for visual use. The dual rate Tri-knob is also available with a Shaft Lock option. The shaft lock system is added to the left knob allowing the focusers position to be locked using a micro compression ring clamp on the knob. This type of lock does not push against the draw tube like other lock systems do. There is no image shift with this style of shaft lock system. The focuser also comes with 4 different motor options that increase the lifting capacity of the focuser to 8 lbs. A DC servo motor version with Rigel hand controller for visual use or consider our popular "High Res stepper motor options" for extreme imaging needs requiring very fine repeatability and temp compensation using any of today's popular ASCOM based software. We offer the High res stepper motor in a Stand alone version, a "James Lacey controller" brand stepper motor version, and "Cercis controller" brand version. We offer 14 different drawtube styles for the CR model focuser with travels ranging from 1.5" to 2.75" in both standard format and brass compression ring format at no extra charge. We also make a unique Swing Filter version that holds a 2" filter in the bottom of the drawtube, but can be placed in and out of the light path from an above mounted lever. Add any of our free 7 custom anodized colors for a perfect, one of a kind focuser to match your scope.
