Item # SI-FTM-CPC8
  • Replace the focus knob on your Celestron CPC 800, NexStar 6SE or NexStar 8SE 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 MicroFocuser is only compatible with the CPC 800, NexStar 8SE & 6SE, and is not for other 8" SCT's.


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.

Product Questions

I 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?  Thank
Will this work with the latest Celestron C6 - XLT? This a new scope
I 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.
