great upgrade to the standard Celestron focuserPros: Cons: Comments:
This is a major improvement to the standard Celestron focuser on the Nexstar 8SE. Gives fine controlled focus and install easily. Allows a very light touch with the fingers to focus clearly without causing too much shake.

FantasticPros: Cons: Comments:
This is supposed to be a “nice to have” item but not essential. After using it the “nice to have” is B.S. I’m not giving it up, ever. It’s expensive but if anyone is looking to do a simple upgrade on their scope this focuser should be number one on the list. The included CD did not work however UTUBE made the installation simple. Took about ten minutes. Operation is smooth and precise. Like a high-end eyepiece, don’t use unless willing to buy.

Feather Touch Micro Focuser for Celestron CPC800, NexStar 8SE & C8Pros: Cons: Comments:
the feather touch micro focuser is very good it makes it so much easier to bring the edgeHD8" to a very sharp focus quickly something the standard one can not do you get close with the standard one but the movement you need are so small with the feather touch micro focuser its a breeze you can make a lot larger movements for a better more refined result
if you do astro imaging this is a must have for perfect focus on a SCT you can also fit a small motor for remote or for no vibration astro imaging and visual focusing work
it also works great for colimnation of a SCT for the last fine adjustments with the airy disc in stage 3 of the colimnation process because of the more refined focus you can achieve (= more defined airy disc pattern)
i would recommend this to everyone with a SCT its something that should come standard from celestron on all STC or mak`s its that good and needed
its a breeze to fit in about 10 min finnish is good too and looks a little special when installed with the solid brass 10:1 fine focus knob
its expensive but i feel its well worth the cash for the astro imaging and visual benefits on jupiter and saturn alone.. more detail in clouds and rings moons quicker and easier one of the best bits of kit i have purchased in astronomy

Feathertouch SCT Micro FocuserPros: Cons: Comments:
Makes focusing on planets much easier to bring out fine detail. Also, if your scope is mounted on a less than stable tripod/mount, the fine focus knob takes very little pressure to turn allowing you to reduce focus shake.

Very useful, highly recommendedPros: Cons: Comments:
1. Very crucial is to get first a confirmation from Supplier and Feather Touch that the model of the Micro Focuser your planning to buy is compatible to model/brand of your telescope.
2. Instruction set for coupling with telescope is easy to follow
3. One of the finer things in astro observation and imaging

Ten times better than stockPros: Cons: Comments:
Very simple to install. The fine adjust is smooth.
Be aware that it adds 1 3/8" to the focusers length. Make sure to check for clearance between added length and your mount.
