The Starlight Instruments SCT FeatherTouch MicroFocuser provides the smoothest control for fine focusing. Two focus knobs allows for standard or 1/10th-speed focusing, making the Feathertouch 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 Feathertouch MicroFocuser is easily installed in place of the original focus knob on the Celestron CPC800, the Celestron NexStar 6SE and the NexStar 8SE telescope. A built-in stop prevents the primary mirror from detaching from the focuser.
This model is not compatible with other 8" SCTs.

- Excellent quality and workmanship
I bought this focuser to replace the standard focuser which I wasn't to fond of.
Installation was a breeze, and very straight forward.
Use was just as simple, and it really is a feathertouch system and is very sensitive with minimal to no friction for the 10:1 focuser knob.
Kept my focus right through the night.
I would definitely recommend it to someone.

- Questions & Answers
Product QuestionsI have the original model of the Celestron 8SE released in 2004 or 2005. It is a bit different from the current 8SE. It's back is flat and does not have the triangle shape found in the late versions. Can you advise on which micro focuser to get? ThankQuestion by: Avtar on Sep 4, 2014 2:13:46 PMQuestion by: MC on Jun 4, 2017 4:06:00 PMThis will work, but you will need to measure the outside diameter of the flange of the stock focuser (the part of the stock focuser that mates to the rear cell) as Celestron uses 2 different size of flanges. 1 that is 1.5"/38mm and 1 that is 1.6"/40.6mm. Please specify at time of order what size flange you have. If you need more assistance, do not hesitate to call or email.Answer by: Ian Lauer (Admin) on Jun 5, 2017 11:50:00 AMI have a Celestron EdgeHD 800 (8" SCT), will this focuser work with that telescope? I see other models advertised to work with the cpc and edgeHD versions of other sizes however I don't see a focuser model advertised to work with the 8" EdgeHD.Question by: Robert Bresley on Feb 27, 2016 12:02:00 PM
