Crayford Newtonian Focusers

MoonLite Model CR Newtonian Focusers
MoonLite's CR model focusers come in both single and dual rate versions. The single rate version is only $165 and the dual rate version is only $265. The dual rate version uses our popular 1.2" dual rate tri-knob that is very smooth and is rated at 5 lb lifting capacity; Perfect for visual use. The dual rate Tri-knob is also available with a Shaft Lock option for an additional $25. The shaft lock system is added to the left knob allowing the focusers position to be locked using a micro compression ring clamp on the knob. This type of lock does not push against the draw tube like other lock systems do. There is no image shift with this style of shaft lock system. The focuser also comes with 4 different motor options that increase the lifting capacity of the focuser to 6 lbs. A DC motor version with hand controller for manual use or consider our popular "High Res stepper motor options" for extreme imaging needs requiring very fine repeatability and temp compensation using any of today's popular ASCOM based software. We offer the High res stepper motor option in a Stand alone version or with one of our MoonLite brand controllers. Please see our latest MoonLite brand 2-speed controller with DRO display. We offer 14 different drawtube styles for the CR model focuser with travels ranging from 1.5" to 2.75" in both standard format and brass compression ring format at no extra charge. We also make a unique Swing Filter version that holds a 2" filter in the bottom of the drawtube, but can be placed in and out of the light path from an above mounted lever. Add any of our free 6 custom anodized colors for a perfect, one of a kind focuser to match your scope. Click the thumbnail for a full description and photos of all the different configurations.
