Orion telescope reflector Dobsonian 1.25" Basic Rack And Pinion Focuser w box:
This sale is for a 1999 Orion Telescopes (Synta of China) 1.25-inch rack and pinion focuser mpn 13031. It will come with its original box, top dust cap, and both over-sized steel set screws. It does not come with mounting hardware because they were never provided originally.
Aside from the "China" decal on the side, this focuser has remained quite unchanged since it was introduced in their catalogs back in the spring of 1997. It would have been used on their 6 and 8 DSE reflectors.This particular model would have come on the earliest XT4.5, 6, and 8 reflectors.
Really, for what it is, I find it to be a fantastic focuser. It is lightweight, extremely smooth-functioning, has no wobble, and holds a hefty amount of payload.
Construction: polyvinyl choloride, steel, and aluminumWeight: 5 ouncesTotal focus draw: 1.93-inchesBolt pattern: 2.78-inches L x 1.22-inches WCurved to fit: optical tubes with outer diameter up to 9.5-inches
