We have a fresh batch of PST Focus Knobs in stock!


A Larger Focus Knob for the Coronado PST



Need something a little more substantial to get a hold of when focusing your PST? Then this is just what you've been waiting for. At 1.125" in diameter this knob is over twice the size of the factory focus knob, affording you a finer focus, better feel, and greater ease of use when wearing gloves or if you have arthritis. This knob is easy to install and requires NO modification of the PST, it merely slides over the factory knob and is held in place with a set screw. This is a must have item for the Coronado PST! Contact us for further info or to make a Purchase.



Price; $25.00 ea. plus S&H (In Stock!)

This is the knob that Coronado should have supplied with the PST. I thought it might be a bit expensive for a knob, but it is well worth it, as I use the scope almost every day.

Shipping was superfast, "installation" took all of 5 seconds. The wrench for the set screw was even supplied! The knob looks good and works smoothly, like having a Feathertouch on the PST.

Nice knob that matches the color of the scope. Makes focusing easier for both visual and imaging. Thanks for making these available.
