Meade #1209 Zero Image-Shift Microfocuser 07079 for all Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescopes models Product Info

With Meade #1209 Zero Image-Shift Microfocuser 07079 you can imageobtain 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.

Included 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.

Meade 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.
