2" Crayford-Style Machined Aluminum Focuser With 1.25" Adapter - Smooth precise focusing is achieved with this classic design. A unique focus tension knob and focus lock design gives complete control over focus.

Steel RA Roller Bearings - Roller bearings make movements smooth and effortless.

Built-In Primary Mirror Cooling Fan - Bring the telescope into thermal equilibrium quickly and efficiently with the battery powered cooling fan. The fan is mounted to the rear of the "vented" primary mirror cell for fast cool down.
