Starlight Inst. Feathertouch SCT MicroFocuser - Celestron C8
Item # SI-FTM-C8
  • Replace the focuser on your Celestron 8" SCT with the ultra-smooth Feathertouch MicroFocuser.
  • Two focus knobs allows standard or 1/10th-speed focusing
  • Great for both visual use and imaging/photography.
  • This FeatherTouch is made for the C8 (black mirror cell). If you have a grey mirror cell, you will need the CPC800 model.


Feathertouch SCT MicroFocuser provides the smoothest control for fine focusing. Two focus knobs allows for standard or 1/10th-speed focusing, making the MicroFocuser extremely accurate. Excellent for both imaging or visual observing, this focuser is precision-machined and anodized black with a brass fine-focus knob.

The SCT MicroFocuser is easily installed in place of the original focus knob on the Celestron 8 (not CPC). Instructions included.

Excellent SCT Upgrade
The 10 x 1 fine focusing with this unit is a huge improvement over the stock focuser and I'm very impressed with the quality of its construction.

Starbright confirmed for me that this focuser would work (and it does) with my C6 scope (mine is black with a flat back). The only caveat is that you'll need to re-use the stock 'allen' screws from the C6.
