High-end stainless steel focuser
you like to equip your telescope with a better focuser and always be
able to find the precise point of focus? The new Omegon Steeltrail
Crayford focuser lets you upgrade your telescope and have the highest
precision focusing immediately. Extremely strong stainless steel ball
bearings and stainless steel guides ensure durability and long life.
- exclusive 2" Crayford focuser with stainless steel ball bearings
- indestructible - stainless steel system for durability
- precision focus via 1:10 reduction ratio
- high load capacity for any accessory - even with an open clamp
- simple to connect to Skywatcher telescopes via an adapter
- anti-reflection ridging - for good contrast
you already own a telescope with a rather basic focuser? Note how its
operation lets the ball bearings dig into the soft aluminium of the
inner tube, scoring it. Do you really think such a focuser will give you
a lifetime of good service? If you are one of those people who
appreciate accuracy and precision, then you will not be happy with this
kind of focuser. It is high time for an upgrade.
Steeltrail - with stainless steel ball bearings
Omegon Steeltrail focuser uses hard stainless steel in all the
important areas. The V2A stainless steel ball bearings run on stainless
steel rails, giving the focuser significantly more precision. Even heavy
loads over long periods are no problem for the focuser. The ball
bearings ensure that it does not shift and guarantee years of consistent
1:10 reduction gearing - precision focusing of objects
high magnifications or for astrophotography, it is sometimes difficult
to find the precise point of focus. But here, the 1:10 reduction gearing
makes this easy. Rotating the grippy stainless steel focus wheel moves
the 2" tube accurately to a tenth of a millimetre. A half turn of the
focus wheel gives a change in focus distance of about one millimetre.
High load capacity for up to 5kg
particularly advantage of the focuser is its high load capacity, which
allows it to take even heavy eyepieces and cameras. The focuser can move
freely, unclamped, as its high quality means the 2" tube will not slip,
but remain firmly in position.
Simple adaptation to a Newtonian telescope
a suitable adapter to the focuser via an 80mm dovetail ring. Many
amateur astronomers have a Skywatcher telescope and want to upgrade it.
Up to now they had a problem however: there was no suitable adapter
available for Skywatcher dimensions. But now our optional Omegon adapter
lets you attach your new focuser to your Skywatcher telescope in only a
couple of minutes.
