Starlight Instruments Feather Touch Micro Pinion Focuser Upgrade

For the "all black" Tele Vue Focuser only. This unit also includes a built in brake for the ultimate in tesion adjustment and control. Please note that this Micro Pinion Assembly will not install on the IS systems OTA's unless you remove the digital system.

Add this Starlight Instruments Feather Touch Micro Pinion Focuser upgrade assembly to the focuser on your Tele Vue telescope. This installation improves the performance of the telescope's fine optics by allowing precision focusing that was pioneered by Starlight Instruments. They have been making and perfecting the fine focus mechanisms for the focusers of amateur astronomers for 15 years and have gained a reputation for precision and quality. Don't settle for anything but a Feather Touch!

The installation is easy for most and will allow the user to now achieve the same level of performance with these telescopes as many of our customers have been enjoying with our focusers on many other telescopes.
