Using this on a 2”
Using this on a 2” GSO Crayford Focuser for refractors. It fits the radius of the focuser perfectly and locks down tight enough even though the GSO focuser only one has a single threaded hole for it. There is no stop on this one so you can slide a ...

Saved my ST90
I'm so glad I bought this gem. It turned my Orion ST90 into my grab-&-go scope. The stock rack-and-pinion focuser was so bad I almost gave away the scope at one point. I bought this excellent GSO Crayford style focuser and it works beautiful...

The fit and finish of this piece is like a work of art. It is well worth the price for those who appreciate such things. I'm thankful that Agena carries this and other such items that most other sellers don't offer.

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...

Very pleased!
Excellent buy.
Focuser fit my Meade Polaris 130 perfectly.
Enlarging the opening to accommodate the focuser was easy using a 2 inch hole saw.
Changing the focuser on my Meade Polaris was well worth every penny spent.

New life for an old instrument

GSO RC~6-8 replacement for EOM RCs.
If you have the older VRC6 or ATRC6/8, then you really need to get this incredible upgrade... no more drawtube slop/flop. its nice and tight and holds a heavy CCD and reducer very well. AAA+++.

Decent plus, but short
A very fine focuser. I bought it to replace the focuser on my Meade 102mm Infinity. I ended up having to buy an additional 2" extension to make it come into focus.

Wow
What a difference this thing makes. Too bad the OTA didn't have this to begin with. I put a Rigel Sys stepper on it and the atrc6 is truly a great astrograph now. Focus heaven.

SCT Crayford Focuser
I installed this Focuser after drilling and tapping mirror lock screws, works like a charm. Easier to focus than the stock knob with exact precision. My ASI 1600 is rock solid in this Focuser , I would recommend this to anyone that owns an SCT

Good focusing but mechanical design could be better
I've owned this focuser for about a year and a half now. It is a replacement unit (my Moonlight Optics unit was stolen) for my C9.25 OTA. The good: reasonable cost, nice fit and finish, the focusing action works well, and the unit isn't a...

Upgrade to a Celestron C80
The C80 originally came with a rack and pinion type focuser, which is sufficient for daylight spotting. Upgrading to a GSO has immensely improved the visual and photographic performance. The C80 lens, and ED doublet, is tack sharp and this focuser al...

So Much Better!
I am a newbie with a nice Maksutov 180 scope. This focuser is vastly easier to use than the built in primary mirror adjustment knob ... very smooth in operation, and makes the scope a joy to use. I recommend it with enthusiasm!
