[SOLD - Thanks Randy!]

Big hefty Crayford-style 2" focuser with micrometer focusing
knob, by Van Slyke Engineering. The focuser is signed and dated
1998 by Paul Van Slyke. This design, while rock solid and
very stable, seems to require a bit of force to "rack out"
due to the two heavy springs (but the action is still silky
smooth in either direction!)

The base will fit on the big 3" threads found on larger Meade
SCT's. Included is an aluminum adapter disk that allows
fitting to standard SCT threads. A bit of tape (removable)
is stuck to the inside of the bottom half of the 2" tube that
allows use of SCT-style focal reducers (such as Meade's 6.3
or 3.3) when the focuser is attached with the 3" threads.

There are a few cosmetic defects that don't affect operation (they really don't!):
- slight pitting on bearings and bearing posts
- black screw that holds one end of one spring is slightly bent
- a general "a bit used" appearance

Why selling? Came as part of another deal, and I just don't
need it (and I am used to my now puny looking NGF-S!)

Asking only $200 shipped CONUS only (final price reduction).
PayPal preferred, M.O. accepted too.

Thanks for looking!
