|The Skywatcher Basic 1.25″ Focuser|
The basic focuser mechanism fitted to the Skywatcher 130 and SkyHawk entry level telescopes amongst others is a simple but reliable focuser made
almost entirely from plastic. It can however be tuned to improve its functionality by a few simple procedures which I have outlined in this simple to
follow step-by-step guide.
This particular focuser was acquired for a project in restoring an old telescope on a budget and I wanted to get the focuser to perform as well as possible.
The telescope being restored was unable to accept anything other than a basic 1.25″ focuser due to its mechanical layout.
