Does anyone know is Starlight will have NEAF specials on their focusers? I know Moonlight does. Gerry

Call 'um and ask!

If I remember right, last year they just had a display, with nothing forsale.

Would someone that's going please ask Vic what is the lift capacity of their R&P focuser. I've called once and emailed three times, but can't get an answer.

Thanks to anyone who can remember!

I asked this question several weeks ago via email. Wayne indicated that the FTF2015BCR can handle 8-10 lbs. I assume this is typical for the line.

I think he posted the specs for the Feathertouch 2.5" focuser, not the 2.5" SV version.

I think you're right. I just noticed the FT on the model number Bruce quoted.
