Product Description

This Starlight Instruments Feather Touch C-14 Edge HD MicroFocuser replaces the standard focus knob on your 14" Celestron Edge HD Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope to provide the smoothest possible manual dual-speed fine focusing control. Although this Feather Touch will not eliminate any image shift already present in your scope, it will greatly improve your ability to hit the focusing "sweet spot" without shaking the tube while you are imaging or observing at high power.

The Feather Touch provides very precise control for both critical CCD imaging focusing and high magnification visual observing. Unlike some heavy add-on rear cell Crayford focusers, its light 6 ounce weight doesn't require a counterweight to keep your tail-heavy scope balanced. The focuser is precision-machined and anodized black with a brass fine-focus knob.

The focuser has two concentric focus knobs. The larger black ribbed outer knob provides standard speed focusing, while the ribbed inner brass knob provides 1/10th-speed fine focusing, making the Feather Touch MicroFocuser extremely accurate. A built-in stop prevents the primary mirror from detaching from the focuser.

The Feather Touch C-14 Edge HD MicroFocuser is easily installed in place of the original focus knob on the Celestron C14 Edge HD scope only. 

If your telescope is a standard C14, and not the Edge HD model,  you will need the standard C14 MicroFocuser (#FTMC14) instead of this Edge HD version.

Review by:
I have owned a number of focusers from stock to motorized, moonlite, feathertouch, you name it. Whether for Visual or Astrophotography, the Feather-Touch will allow you MUCH finer focusing for these applications. Also the image will not jump around nearly as much as with a stock focuser when focusing. For AP it is indispensable, as focus can kill an image even if all other settings are perfect. I own one currently for my 115mm FPL-53 scope from Explore Scientific. My Imaging partner uses this on a c9.25 cassegrain I gave him as a gift. I wouldn't even think to image without it. If you're serious about your imaging, you'll be hard pressed to find one review of any scope where the stock focuser hasn't been replaced with one of better quality. fine Focus is a MUST. The buttery smooth movement and mechanics are worth every penny in my opinion. (Posted on 12/21/2018)
