This Crayford focuser was took off an old Synta 8" newtonian OTA.

The plastic focuser body has an "opened" design and is entirely made of plastic. The focuser base measures 3.5" x 3.5".
The 2" drawtube is metal and seem to operate smoothly within the body helped by 4 ball bearings.

It includes a 2"-to-1.25" eyepiece adapter.

The 4 mounting screws and nuts are included.

The previous owner made a repair to what appears was a crack in the plastic body (see picture). The repair is not the most elegant, but seem solid and straight enough.
Felt pads are also seen within the body of the focuser, most probably to get rid of drawtube side play.

I have only tested this focuser removed from the telescope using a regular lightweight 25mm Super Plossl eye piece and the focuser had noo problem moving up and down.
Tension can be adjusted if required on the back of the focuser body.

Asking $15 USD.
Buyer pays shipping (ships from Canada via Canada Post / USPS). Please contact me via CN Messenger with your postal code/zip code for a shipping quote.
