Moonlite Replacement Flanges - CFL-Flange
CFL focuser bottom flanges sold separately here. The bottom rotating flange part can be changed allowing the focuser to be installed on other size / style refractors. The bottom flange part requires that the Moonlite CFL 2.5" format focuser have the current matching upper flange.
How to change the flange on a CFL model focuser:
Use a 1/8 inch Allen wrench to back out the 3 set screws located 120 degrees around the upper flange part.
Back out the aluminum locking thumbscrew.
Twist and pull off the bottom flange part from the upper flange part. Note: white lithium grease will cause some sticktion when trying to pull them apart.
Install new flange, add some grease if needed.
Lightly snug up the 3 nylon tipped set screws so they just touch the new flanges radial dovetail. Then lightly snug them and rotate flange to desired resistance. Flange should be stiff but rotate smoothly.
Snug up aluminum thumbscrew to lock position.
Some customers may need to change / swap the upper flange part. It is easy to change once the lower flange is removed.
Use a 5/32 inch allen wrench to remove the 3 cap head bolts and remove the upper flange part. Install the new upper flange part using the same bolts, then re-attach the lower flange as noted above.
