Lumicon Low-Profile 1.25in Focuser for Newtonian on 3.5inch Base
The Low Profile 1.25" Focuser for Newtonian, 3.5" Base, is a high-precision, pin-and-groove type helical focuser. The 3.5" base provides for replacing larger focusers with a center-to-center hole-spacing of 2.75". The draw-tube does not rotate.

Accessories that take up back-focus, such Lumicon's popular 1.25" Multiple Filter Selector, can be used with ease and convenience.  The high-precision, smooth focusing brings out the very best in your telescope's optics.  The low-profile design quickly and easily converts your standard Newtonian to a camera-ready telescope. The U-groove base aligns and sits flush on any telescope tube with a radius of 4.5" or larger.
