A few years ago, while purchasing all the Astronomy Equipment form a retired (after 40 years!) Edmund Lens/Mirror maker, this 1.25" Focuser came attached to a very early Orion 113mm f/3.9 StarBlast Reflector (yes, one of the first versions). Having the 'correct' Focuser on hand, I changed them out. But, I used it quite a few times before the change, and this 'Helical' R&P Focuser is outstanding!
It was Made In Japan, and is ALL Metal, of a VERY Solid Construction. Focusing is smooth, adjustments are easy, and the 'compression tube' holds eyepieces quite firmly in place! Now, you may note that I put a '?' after 'Edmund' in the Listing Title. That's because I can't be sure that Edmund sourced this, or if this came from a different 'Brand' (The early Meade Focusers looked identical). The employee has since passed on, so I can't ask him.
Anyway, I've included the hardware that came with it, minus a bolt and washer. I should also note that this fits a 114mm OTA.
Total Cost is $22, which INCLUDES USPS Priority Mail Shipping, WITHIN the Contiguous 48 States, the ONLY area to which I ship!
Payment is via PayPal ONLY and Please..... Do NOT use 'Friends & Family', since I, as the shipper, Pay ALL Fees, as REQUIRED by PayPal!
Thanks to all for your time and consideration!
