Hi, I am selling my excellent condition Moonlite 2.5" CSL Focuser (blue body) which has been upgraded to the super strong stainless steel draw tube. Also includes Moonlite Hi res Stepper Motor and Mini V2 controller.
Moonlite focusers are well known for their quality, strength, precision machining and excellent customer service. I purchased this new about 4 years ago. It works great, and can handle heavy payloads. I would keep it, but it is just too large for my new travel scope system.
-- This is the CSL 2.5" Large Format Crayford focuser for 10"/12" SCT/RC by Astro Tech/GSO/Orion. Moonlite has other adaptors for different scopes.
-- It has an upgraded Stainless Steel drawtube (standard is hard anodized aluminum) with 68mm threads. The 68mm threads let you screw the focuser directly to the image train.
-- The focuser flange is rotatable for camera angle and can collimate the image train to the optics.
-- This focuser is strong enough to handle the entire image train consisting of my SBIG STT-8300M with Self-Guiding Filter Wheel FW8G-STT, AO8T Adaptive Optics. This is the focuser I used with my SBIG imaging system.
-- The electric focuser and controller work great with focusing software for precision focusing.

Included is:
-- Above focuser. Check the Moonlite focuser website for more focuser details.
-- Moonlite Hi Res Stepper Motor.
-- Mini V2 controller with cables and power adapter.
-- Thermocouple for automatic focus adjustment. Missing in picture, but I have it.
-- 68mm to 2" adapter
-- 68mm to 1.25" adapter
-- 68mm to STL thread with lock ring. The STL thread fits the SBIG AO8T adaptive optics. The entire image train will be connected by threads.
Please advise any questions.
I am travelling outside USA, and will return to Baltimore/Washington DC area before Thanksgiving.
I will accept PayPal (add 3%), personal checks (after cleared), cashier checks, and cash. I prefer pickup, but will ship at my expense to 48 states.


  • Condition Used, clean, good working order
  • Location Baltimore/Washington DC area
