Motorised Revelation Crayford for the Mak180


Recommended Posts

After getting the Revelation focuser from Santa at Christmas I have been mulling over fitting the SW Motor Focuser Ive had since Kelling in October to it.


Finally sorted it by making a new spindle on the lathe and doing a bit of cutting and benderage to the brackets supplied with the Motor Focuser Ive managed at last to make it fit. This replaces the single wheel and retains the 2 speed wheels. The focuser can now be operated manually or electrically.


This will only really be used for focusing for imaging as the standard mirror shift focuser is more than adequate for visual.
