Product Details

Feather Touch Micro Telescope Focuser for Celestron 6" Evolution Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope # FTM-C6 Evolution. This focuser will also work on some Celestron NexStar 6SE telescopes.

Celestron Nexstar 6SE Telescope Owners Please Note: For the Celestron 6SE, you will need to measure the outside diameter of the flange of the stock focuser (the part of the stock focuser that mates to the rear cell) *before* ordering. This is because Celestron uses two different size of flanges for the 6SE, one that is 1.5"/38mm in diameter and another that is 1.6"/40.6mm. Purchase this focuser for your 6SE if you have the smaller (1.5"/38mm) flange. If your scope has the larger flange, please buy model # FTM-CPC8 instead.

Most modern Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes come with a single speed stock focuser on the rear cell. While these stock devices do bring an image to focus, the focal point is extremely sensitive to the rotational position of the focuser knob. As a result, it’s often frustrating and time consuming to get objects to snap into sharp focus. The dual speed Starlight Instruments Feather Touch Micro Focuser is an ideal replacement for the stock focuser for your Celestron Evolution 6 telescope. A joy to use, the Feather Touch Micro Focuser provides precise, buttery smooth control of standard and ultrafine 1/10-speed manual focusing to get the best possible images from your telescope.

The Starlight Instruments Feather Touch Micro Focuser is easily installed in place of the original focus knob on the Evolution 6 optical tube. The focuser is simple to install yourself in about 10 minutes. Detailed instruction are included.

The Feather Touch Micro Focuser is precision-machined and anodized black with a brass fine-focus knob and is ideal for both imaging or visual observing. All Starlight Instruments products and accessories are precision machined from the highest quality materials to insure long life and trouble-free operation.

Note: This model is not intended for use with Celestron 8" SCTs.
