With Meade #1209 Zero Image-Shift Microfocuser 07079 you
can obtain extremely precise image focus - truly to a microscopic level - during
visual and astrophotographic applications and, during CCD applications,
simultaneously maintain precise image centration on even the smallest CCD chips.
as standard equipment with all Meade
LX200GPS Schmidt-Cassegrain models, the
Microfocuser-1209 is operated with those models through the
Autostar II handbox. Alternately, the # 1209 Zero Image-
Shift Meade Microfocuser 07079 is available with
a separate control handbox for use with all other Schmidt-
Cassegrain telescope models (e.g., Meade LX10, LX90,
LX200, etc.), whether of Meade manufacture or other
brand. Except for the handbox, the #1209 unit is identical
to the Microfocuser 07079 supplied with LX200GPS telescopes.
Zero Image-Shift 1209 Microfocuser operates at four speeds from
extremely slow to fast and threads directly onto the
telescope's rear cell. Coarse manual focusing of the
telescopic image is effected through the telescope's manual
focus knob, as before.
The format of the #1209 unit allows for direct insertion of
2"-barrel eyepieces or diagonal mirrors; an adapter for
1.25"-barrel eyepieces or diagonals is included as well.
Operates from 8 x AAA (usersupplied) batteries.
