Manufacturer Description

A Larger Focus Knob for the Coronado PST!

Need something a little more substantial to get a hold of when focusing your PST? Then this is just what you've been waiting for. At 1.125" diameter this knob is over twice the size of the factory focus knob, affording you a finer focus, better feel, and greater ease of use when wearing gloves or if you have arthritis. This knob is easy to install and requires NO modification of the PST - it merely slides over the factory knob and is held in place with a set screw (allen key to lock this is included). This is a must have item for the Coronado PST!

Proudly made in the USA by Criterion Machining Co. (CMC) from 6061 aluminum stock, this knob sports a beautiful gold anodized finish. The set screw is made of 18-8 grade stainless steel and has a 10-32 thread. The knob's inside diameter is 12mm and it weighs only 0.7oz.

 Please note that these knobs are sold individually (not in pairs as shown in the photo above).

      5.0 A must-have for the PST

      Pros:

      Easy to Use

      Cons:

      If you own a PST then this is a must-have accessory. It is simple to attach and makes focusing the telescope much easier. It also looks much better than the original.
