Orion Low Profile Hybrid Dual Speed Focuser
This Orion Low Profile Hybrid Dual Speed Focuser is designed to provide the viewer with top quality focus results for both astrophotography and observational activities.
This well constructed and sturdy hybrid focuser is built with the traditional Crayford style in mind by adding a helical spur on the two-speed focus that helps with control and prevent backlash. As a result, the Orion Low Profile Hybrid Dual Speed Focuser can support over 16lbs. of payload without compromising smooth and slip free motion.
This speed focuser can only be attached to 8" and 10" reflector telescopes. Enhanced views and images are accomplished by containing the benefits of rack-and-pinion and Crayford focusers to offer fine-focus performance, integrated 43mm extension tube for increased flexibility (Minimum racked-in height 58mm), 11:1 fine focus ratio, and dual-speed control. In addition, the Orion Low Profile Hybrid Dual Speed Focuser includes a 1.25” compression adapter that is compatible with 1.25” eyepieces and 1.25” accessories.
Altogether, the Orion Low Profile Hybrid Dual Speed Focuser is a great item to add to your 8" or 10" reflector telescopes as the results will be a positive one.

Product QuestionsCan I reach focus with a filter wheel and DSLR camera (canon 6D) assembly on a reflector FL= 1000mm f/5 telescope with this low profile focuser?Question by: Carlos Gonzalez on May 28, 2015 7:20:00 PMI would need more information about the mirror placement, tube diameter and position of the focal plane before I could say for sure. Probably not without modifying the telescope as this focuser would have to be at least 35-50mm shorter than the focuser it was replacing to allow a DSLR (needing 55mm with a T-ring) to reach focus. The primary mirror may need to be moved closer to the secondary mirror to allow enough back focus unless the telescope manufacturer specifically designed the scope for astrophotography.Answer by: Chris Hendren on Jun 2, 2015 4:03:00 PM
