Unbranded (but came from Orion) garden variety all metal (except for the knobs) 1.25" ring and pinion focuser for Newtonian reflectors. Curve of base looks to be for a 7" or 8" diameter tube (probably from a 6" Newt), a bit too curved for a 9" tube (as measured on an Orion 8" mirrored Newt) but it would still work with a bit of air in the middle.

1.25" EP holder is threaded so is removeable from the drawtube. Lowest profile is 3-1/2", draw adds another 1-3/8" to the height of the EP. Comes with what looks to be three of the original four bolt sets that hold it to the tube, one set was missing when I got it.

Action very smooth, if it was on my scope I would feel no need to replace or adjust it. Might tighten up in the cold depending on the grease used by the manufacturer. Has a hand written tag on it says #67201 and "SVD 8" which probably means "Sky View Deluxe 8", an 8" Newt.

$40 shipped CONUS via USPS First Class mail, PayPal preferred but not required, no fee.
