Antares adapter ring
Looks great but mine was .020 oversize and out of round and would not fit in my tube. Had to go to a machine shop for modification.

Works perfectly in my Celestron 100ED with the 100ED flange. Very smooth compared to the stock focuser. Focuses at infinity with all my eyepieces with about 10mm to spare. At closer focus, say looking at pine cones 2 blocks away, it would require an ...

Great Upgrade
My 150mm Mak has enough image shift at high powers to be very annoying when focusing. Problem solved with this focuser. I do not do imaging, so I went with the single speed and it is all I need.

Modified my omni XLT150 to dual speed using this
Since my Omni XLT150 crayford focuser is only single speed I ordered this and somehow managed to do some simple mods to make it work. The result was a fine and smooth focusing action. Since the stock focuser is made by Synta the first thing I did wa...

GSO 2" Crayford Focuser
Excellent!! Great value The 10-1 ratio focus is what I needed to achieve fine focus on any object I choose.
GSO does it again. Don't tell them they will raise the price.

Nicely made 2X focuser at a reasonable price
I find this focuser to be well made and free of any play or backlash. It's very smooth and the adjustments are helpful to get the right feel. The price is very reasonable and to me that is a factor.

Very useful, highly recommended
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...

Great Focuser
Installed in 5 minutes.
Glad I got the dual speed focuser. It was well worth the money.
My Orion Short tube 80 finally has a good star test.
Stars are much sharper.

Recieved this focuser within 24 hrs of placing the order, (regular free USPS shipping). I'm physically close too the vendor which would explain, but the order was processed and shipped on the same day. This focuser replaced the original unit on ...

too precise
buy a dual speed economic focus that gives me a better performance than my Celestron C8n brings, and this does not disappoint me, I just had to get that if a longer screw because it is a little wider, but I'm super happy with the performance, no...

I have been observing for 15 years. Never used a crayford focuser. Bought this for my 15 year old Short Tube 80. Installed this very nice looking focuser in 4 minutes. Incredible. Should have done this a long time ago. Stargazing just became a differ...

Works on the Orion 150mm Mak-Cas
I got this focuser for my new Orion 150mm Mak-Cas after doing quite a bit of research looking to see if anyone else had used it with the 150. I was specifically worried that the base of the focuser barrel would be too wide and would not fit between t...

Been engaged in astronomy for about four years. Have a 10" reflector and gradually got interested in astrophotography. As most of you know photography with a reflector is challenging. It is, however, an intriguing pursuit. This focuser is a nece...

You Deserve It!!!
No it’s not cheap, yes it’s awesome!!! My stock focuser for my Meade LX90-ACF 8” left a lot to be desired. I tried the Peterson Engineering upgrade to the stock focuser first. Yes it worked, and yes it was better, it still lacked that precision...
