50.8mm Steeltrack Focuser  SCT
The Crayford style of focuser is becoming increasing popular due to its superior performance. Baader's new Steeltrack® Crayford Focusers incorporate a number of  innovative features that further enhance the performance of the Crayford focuser.  Baaders Steetrack focusers are available in 2" and 3" (refactors) and 2" (SCT and Newtonian reflector) sizes.

All Baader Steeltrack® focusers incorporate the following features:

•The precision ball bearings ride on hardened and polished stainless steel ways that are  inset into the thick-walled aluminum drawtube.  The large diameter pinion drive also rides on a precision laser cut  hardened and polished steel way.  This important feature delivers an ultra-smooth motion that is superior to to the rougher motions of an aluminum bearing system, and guarantees that the buttery-smooth motions will remain that way over the life of the focuser.  Crayford focusers that rely on machined and anodized aluminum bearing ways can become worn and pitted over time, which results in loss of smoothness and accuracy.
•Extra-large focusing knobs and Precision 1:10 reduction gearing.  
•Precision pinion drive and bearing assembly ensures an exceedingly smooth slipless motion and avoids the movement of the drawtube present in other crayford focusers.
•Each Steeltrack incorporates a drawtube locking screw that supports even extremely heavy cameras and eyepieces without flexure or slippage.  The knurled lock screw incorporates a swivelling anti-marring brass insert that allows firm clamping of the drawtube without marring or damage to the focusing mechanism.  
•Upgradeable motorized focussing accessory coming soon
•Internal drawtube surfaces are knife edge baffled to eliminate stray light reflections.
•Bronze compression rings permit secure clamping of eyepieces and accessories without damage to accessories.
•Baader precision and quality.  All parts are precisely machined and their high surface quality make the Baader Steeltrack an attractive compliment to any telescope.
•Graduated markings on the drawtube aid in measuring and repeating focus positions.
•A complete set of adapters and extensions permit adaptation onto practically any telescope.
Focus your SCT without any annoying image shift inherant in some SCT's. This focuser has a back focus of 30mm.  Included are adapters 2957036 and 2957037 to allow the focuser to be fitted to any SCT from 6" to 14
