The Lunt Mini is a non-rotating helical focuser that provides a T2 (male) to T2 (female) thread connection. The focuser has 10 mm of precision travel, a brass compression ring for protection of eyepieces, and a locking collar. The T2 thread design is ideal for fine camera/eyepiece focus.
This nicely machined 2″ dual speed, 10:1 Crayford-style focuser is included on all standard LS60THa and LS80THa telescope packages. Course as well as fine adjustments in focus can be achieved with the easy to operate adjustment knobs, and the draw tube is etched with a focusing scale for repeatable results.
