Omegon 2" V-Power focuser - precision for producing perfect astronomy photos

One of the most important tools for really good astrophotography is a good focuser which will not let you down. You can rely on a new Omegon V-Power Crayford focuser, which ensures maximum precision when focusing on astronomical objects. Extremely strong stainless steel ball bearings and stainless steel runners ensure durability and long life.

  • exclusive 2-inch Crayford focuser with stainless steel ball bearings
  • indestructible - stainless steel barrel for long a life
  • precision focusing via 1:10 reduction gearing
  • high load capacity for inserting any accessory - even when not locked in place
  • antireflection grooving - for high contrast

Fight mirror shift

When adjusting the focus on your SC telescope, you have probably experienced the problem of stars in the field of view moving wildly around. For astrophotography, using a V-Power unit will avoid this problem. Attached to your telescope, it lets you can objects sharply without mirror shift. This is made possible by some sophisticated mechanics.

V-Power - with stainless steel ball bearings

The critical components of the Omegon V-Power focuser are all made of hard stainless steel. Stainless steel ball bearings run along stainless steel runners - meaning the focuser achieves significantly improved accuracy. The focuser even takes high loads over long periods in its stride. The ball bearing ensures no slippage and guarantees years of consistent quality.

1:10 reduction gearing - focusing objects precisely

At high magnifications or in astrophotography, it is difficult to find the precise point of focus. The 1:10 fine focusing makes this much easier. The 2" tube moves by tenths of a millimetre as you turn the handy stainless steel knob. A half turn of the fine focus knob means a focus distance change of about one millimetre.

Further advantages and features of the V-Power focuser

  • adjustable pressure for lighter or stiffer focusing
  • 6.5mm brass gear wheel for future control via an added motor
  • simply connection of your finder scope - 2-way connector for V-Power search shoes
  • CNC machined and black anodized
  • laser-engraved scale for easy-to-find focus position
  • overall length 60mm, focus travel 30mm

High load capacity up to 5 Kg

A special advantage of this focuser is its high load capacity - it can take even heavy eyepieces and cameras. The focuser can move freely being locked as the 2" tube does not slip but remains firmly in position.

From now on, you're in charge, ensuring perfectly-focused astronomy photos.

Omegon V-Power focusers are available in three versions

  • for 8 inch Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes
  • for 11 inch Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes
  • for Newtonian telescopes, e.g. from Skywatcher, Celestron and Orion

All three models come supplied with the appropriate adapters (see ilustration). You simply connect your eyepiece to your telescope.
