For left-hand Focusmate Driver install on all 4" or 5" Tele Vue scopes. Also used on TV60is, TV-76, TV-85 where it is attached to a Focusmate mounted on the right-side. On TV-76 and TV-85 this maintains full forward telescope positioning in the ring mount for balancing (APB-1008 balance aid is recommended).
For visual or CCD use, focusing a Tele Vue telescope can now be smoother, more accurate and vibration – free when you add the Focusmate plus the new Focusmate Driver (FDR-2001 or FDL-2002). This adjustable speed electric motor drive installs easily onto the Focusmate 6:1 fine focus unit, and offers a unique quick disconnect for switching (without tools) between electric and manual operation.
If the Digital Micrometer Kit (DMK-0002), is also installed, measurement is possible to an unprecedented .0001" (1/10,000"). A gentle tap on the motor direction switch can produce steps as small as about .0005" (5/10,000").
All Tele Vue scopes having focusing knobs with 5 holes will accept the Focusmate 6:1 reducer and the Focusmate Driver. All current production Tele Vue scopes from the TV-76 through NP-127 now accept the Digital Micrometer Kit, as well, so that their fullest imaging and visual performance can be realized. Truly, focusing will be "even better than you imagined."
