We offer everything from our manual Dual rate reduction unit with shaft lock knob to different types of motor options for both visual or imaging configurations. Our « High Res » stepper motor options use PC based interfaces, providing automated focus ability running todays ASCOM software. Different draw tube lengths /travels with 68mm thread in adapters make a rigid all threaded connection for large imaging loads. The C-axis drawtube collimation system provides flexibility for achieving perfect mechanical centerline collimation should the need arise. Custom anodized colors and custom flange machining (by request) make for a perfect custom focuser to match your Newtonian.

MoonLite manufactures many size flanges for the CRL Newt focuser. Please use the pull down menu to select the flange located at the bottom of this page.

All current CRF flanges feature a 2 piece rotating flange design with a lock knob providing camera angle adjustment. It consist of an upper flange part and a lower flange part on a rotatable radial dove tail design. The upper flange part bolts on to the focuser body with 3 bolts. The lower flange part has the curve and 4 bolt pattern and connects in to the upper flange. This 2 part rotating flange system provides collimation ability using a simple 3-point push pull bolt/setscrew arraignment. Please note all focusers are factory collimated dead on before we ship them, and do not require any adjustment. The only time collimation should be changed is if the OTA has some kind of defect causing the focuser to set slanted on the tube. In this case the focuser’s collimation ability would come in handy to correct the mechanical centerline collimation of the OTA in question. Flanges can be swapped on the bottom of the focuser so it will fit different OTAs. Bottom Flanges are sold separately for $95.

The curved flanges come in curve sizes from 6″ to 24″ please see bottom of page to pick the correct curve. The curve size is based on the mirror size of the scope, not the larger tube diameter. Example an 8″ flange has aprox a 9 1/2″ curve.

The flat flange is designed for larger dobs that have a flat focuser mounting board and has leveling set screw adjustments in the corners .

The TAK E130 flange is specificly for that scope in both curve and bolt hole locations, the matching drawtube is the threaded E130 drawtube.

The TAK E160 flange is specificly for that scope in both curve and bolt hole locations, the matching drawtube is the threaded E160 drawtube.

The TAK E180 flange is specifically for the 180. and also matches the curve and bolt hole locations on the TAK E180, the matching drawtube is the threaded E180 drawtube.

MoonLite CRL focuser drawtubes have 3 travel sizes to pick from, 1″ travel, 1.5″ travel, and 2″ travel versions. The drawtube has a 68mm thread top to allow many different thread in adapters to be used. Please Note – all drawtubes include both a 68mm to 2″ comp ring adapter and a 68mm to 1 1/4″ comp ring adapter for free except the special TAK E130/E160 and E180 drawtubes. The TAK drawtubes have the specific thread for the internal TAK corrector lens to thread in. Please use the pull down menu at the bottom of this page to select your drawtube.

MoonLite has many knob and motor configurations. Our reduction systems and motor options are normally integrated into the focuser at the time of assembly. Please use the pull down menu located at the bottom of this page to select the configuration you need.

Standard -The standard CRL comes with our heavy-duty Dual rate reduction unit. It is a dual rate (2 speed) configuration using our extremely smooth 8 to 1 reduction unit. It uses large 1.5″ OD knobs and has both a coarse and a fine knob on one side and a coarse on the other and provides a lifting capacity to 6 lbs. The fine focus adjustment knob is on the right by default, but can be made a lefty if needed.

Dual rate with shaft lock – The Dual rate with Shaft Lock option adds a lock system to the left coarse side knob. The shaft lock option uses a unique mini brass compression ring clamp sub system that allows the user to lock the shaft with out deflecting the drawtube. This type of focus lock is much better then the old « thumb screw against the draw tube » style that would shift the image when pressed against the draw tube. The shaft lock ability along with the 6 lb heavy-duty reduction unit make this option ideal for heavy demanding loads for both visual and imaging requirements.

DC Motor – The DC motor with slip clutch option uses our Dual channel battery operated hand controller. It allows adjustable speed control for focus on the first channel, and the 2nd channel is available for running a 2nd focuser, or our rotating flange option. The Slip clutch feature on the motor allows both manual operation using the knobs and electronic hand controller operation at the same time. The DC gear head motor and controller combination are ideal for operation of the focuser when a Computer is not going to be used. The DC motor is good for visual or imaging and provides a 8 lb lifting capacity when installed on the focuser. Please note, the DC motor option is operated by a Hand controller only, there is no PC ability with this option. A 6′ long cable is provided, but can be extended to 200′ if needed.

High Resolution Stepper Motor/stand alone is for customers that may all ready have a stepper motor controller. – The high resolution stepper motor option provides extremely fine .00008″ focus resolution. The motor provides an 8 lb. load capacity once installed on a CRL focuser. It gives the focuser great repeatability and automated focus ability for today’s imaging requirements when using a PC. The high resolution stepper motor’s slip clutch feature allows both manual operation using the focusers knobs and electronic PC control at the same time. The stepper motor follows the 9 pin DBA standard pin out, so it will work with ROBO focus (pin for pin) controllers along with many other brand controllers. We offer two different controllers below if you do not have a controller. This option is for PC based automation. A stepper motor controller of some type is required. Please see Motor options for more details: Motor Focus Options

High Resolution Stepper Motor with MoonLite Mini V2 Controller – The high resolution stepper motor with mini V2 ASCOM compliant controller. The MoonLite Mini controller features a remote temp probe, Speed control and up/ down buttons on the controller box for manual operation of the motor alone with full PC control. It uses a USB connection to your PC and runs off standard 12 volt DC. We include an AC adapter with a universal plug so it will work in any country, USB cable, 9pin DBA cable, and remote temp probe. Works with all ASCOM based software once the driver is loaded. We also include a Non- ASCOM program for customers to operate the focuser that may not have ASCOM set up. The 8 lb. load rating and precise focus ability make this a good configuration for permanent or remote imaging platforms. The slip clutch feature for manual knob operation is always included with all Motor options so the focuser can be used in many configurations, manual knob, controller buttons, or remote PC operation. Please see Motor options for more details: Motor Focus Options This is the most popular Moonlite focuser configuration we sell.

High Resolution Stepper Motor with Dual Port DRO Display Controller. This option includes a 2 port controller and can operate 2 separate focusers at the same time, or 1 focuser running both focus and a rotator. It is a full ASCOM compliant controller along with the high resolution stepper motor with slip clutch. Along with our ASCOM driver, we also include a basic Non- ASCOM program for customers to operate the focuser that may not have ASCOM set up. This controller is best for both visual and PC operation due to its buttons and full DRO display on the controller box located at the scope. It has a fine and fast mode using the buttons on either channel with a full DRO position readout on the display that shows the exact step count position just like in the software of your favorite imaging program. The controller has a remote temp probe just like the mini V2 above and full digital display, plus manual buttons for stand alone use. The 8 lb. load rating on a CRL model focuser and extreme precise focus ability at .00008” resolution and repeatability make this the ultimate configuration for permanent and remote imaging platforms. This controller / stepper motor option is recommended for both PC and hand held manual operation. It comes with universal voltage AC adapter and USB cable. The slip clutch feature for manual knob operation is always included with all Motor options so the focuser can be used in many configurations, manual knob, controller buttons, or remote PC operation. Please see Motor options for more details: Motor Focus Options
MoonLite offers ASCOM drivers to run with your existing imaging software, and a simple non ASCOM program for customers not running a full blown ASCOM automated system (for someone who just wants a simple automated control app to run the focuser). See the Download tab on our Web site for Software. Please note: Motor kits can be added at a later time, as we sell motor kits that customers can install themselves.

Adjustments:

Lifting Capacity: The drawtube pressure can be adjusted to each user’s preference. Increasing the pressure increases the load capacity (vertical lifting capacity) of the focuser. Decreasing the pressure lowers the load capacity but gives the focuser a smoother focusing action. We set the focuser at approximately 6 lbs. at time of assembly; however, you can adjust it to be less or more depending on your specific needs. The ideal setting is to have it adjusted so the focuser can hold the heaviest load presented without slipping and requiring no additional force. This will give the focuser the best feel and still provide the vertical lifting capacity required. Please note if a motor option is installed we adjust it for an 8lb rating.
To adjust – turn the aluminum thumbscrew located between the two setscrews on the bottom of the focuser CW to increase load capacity. The aluminum thumbscrew can only add pressure, not take away pressure. This is due to the 2 setscrews on each side of the thumbscrew applying a minimum set pressure amount. In some rare cases, it may be necessary to do a coarse adjustment by turning the 2 setscrews located on each side of the aluminum thumbscrew (1/8 allen wrench) a very small amount. Normally, 1/20 of a turn or less should be made on the setscrews in a CW direction, then check the lifting capacity pressure by racking the drawtube up and down.

Collimation: CRL focusers now have 2 collimation systems. The traditional upper to lower flange tip/ tilt collimation system using 4 small set screws, and also the new C-axis collimation at the bearing locations for drawtube collimation. To adjust flange collimation, turn the 4 mini setscrews located in the top part of the 2-part flange. A small amount of tip/tilt (.015 max) can be made between the flanges by adjusting the setscrews. We collimate the C-axis drawtube’s center line before shipping it so no adjustment should be required. See video on how the new C-axis collimation is performed as it can be changed by the user if needed.
