Before installation, confirm the back cell style of the Celestron SCT telescope, whether it has a flat or triangular pattern. If your telescope has a triangular pattern on the back, then this is the correct model for you.

  1. Remove the black rubber focus knob from the telescope.
  2. Remove the flat plate on the focus assembly cover by unscrewing the screws.
  3. Unthread the cylinder and bearing assembly by rotating it in a counter-clockwise direction.
  4. Unscrew the stop from the end of the micro focuser and thread it to the shaft of the telescope.
  5. Attach the micro focuser to the stop and screw it until the base sits flat on the telescope.
  6. Use Black Knob for coarse focus and Brass Knob for fine focus.

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, as Celestron uses 2 different size of flanges, 1 that is 1.5″/38mm and 1 that is 1.6″/40.6mm.  We do have both of the size of flanges so if ordering from a distributor or direct from us, please let them know what size of flange you have.

If your telescope is less than a few years old, check the style of the back cell to see which version of the Feather Touch® SCT Micro Focuser you need: If your telescope has a flat back (left picture), you need the standard “C” Micro Focuser. If your telescope has a triangular pattern on the back (right picture), you will need the “CPC” version of the Micro Focuser.
