This Starlight Instruments Feather Touch CPC-800 MicroFocuser replaces the standard focus knob on your Celestron CPC-800 8” Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope (or Celestron NexStar 6SE and NexStar 8SE) 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 5 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 CPC-800 MicroFocuser is easily installed in place of the original focus knob on the Celestron CPC800, the Celestron NexStar 6SE, and the NexStar 8SE telescopes only. It is not compatible with other Celestron or Meade 8” SCTs.
If your telescope is less than a few years old, check the style of the back cell to see of this is the focuser you need. If your telescope rear cell has a flat back, you need the standard C8 MicroFocuser. If your telescope has a raised triangular pattern on the back, this is the correct version of the focuser for your scope.
