In practice, the coma corrector will require some in-travel of the focuser to put it in the right place in the optical path.




Is this the case with most eyepieces in a Paracorr? If so, that would fit the bill for me because my focuser drawtube is almost ALL OF THE WAY OUT for all of my eyepieces!

Wherever the Paracorr comes to focus, and it's usually about 1/2" in, all your eyepieces will focus there because differential focuser position is taken up by adjusting the tunable top.
The Paracorr, in a way, parfocalizes your eyepieces.
