The New Baader Diamond Steeltrack Focuser for Newtonian Telescopes

This premium crayford style focuser has many innovative features and Includes Baader Versabase, for perfect fit onto most tube diameters. Optional additional mounting base available soon

Drive System:

  • True diamonds form a micro-geared high precision drive system never accomplished before 
  • In comparison to conventional crayford or rack & pinion drives, this micro-geared movement has zero backlash, zero cogging, and zero flxure 
  • Diamond Steeltrack 2" focusers lift a payload of 6kg (13 lbs) straight up, without slipping, without excessive
    bearing preload (bearing preload can be increased further if necessary) 
  • Bearing system utilizes unbreakable Instrument Grade Roller-Bearings instead of simpler Ball Bearings handles higher loads with greater rigidity and accuracy. No Tefln-pads anywhere 
  • 1:10 Stainless Steel fie-focus mechanism, ready for attachment of the optional Steeldrive temperature compensating motor drive system 
  • Detachable drive block assembly is reversible for right hand or left hand fie-focus operation and for attaching the Steeldrive motorblock onto Diamond-NT-Steeltracks for newtonian telescopes 
  • Shortest possible mechanical design achieves optimum balance between focuser height (backfocus) and
    rigidity requirements 
  • Zero shift locking knob to precisely stop any movement without affecting optical axis adjustment 

Focusing Drawtube:

  • Each bearing individually adjustable for precise alignment of mechanical vs. optical axis 
  • Ultra-hard subzero coated bearing races – precision milled and much harder than anodizing or stainless steel 
  • Oversized 55mm inner clear diameter, to prevent vignetting, with anti-reflction knife-edge baffles 

Clamping System:

  • S58 Dovetail ring-clamp built into focusing tube for accepting optional T-2 / M48 / M68 and other S58 direct thread adapters to enable direct thread connection of accessories and cameras without 2" clamp 
  • 2" eyepiece clamp with hardened bronze clamp ring (length of clamp: 12.5mm / ½") included as standard 
  • Optionally available 2" Baader Clicklock-clamp w. integrated S58 dovetail (added length: 16mm / 5/8") 
  • Two auxiliary threads (M60x1 and M55x0,75) cut into the RT & NT focusing-tube for attachment of dedicated
    field flatteners or focal reducers/correctors 

Telescope Adapters:

  • Refractor-BDS (RT): Adapters available or under development to fi a wide variety of refractor telescopes 
  • Newtonian-BDS (NT): Includes Baader Versabase, for perfect fit onto most tube diameters.
     Optional flt mounting base available soon 
  • SC/HD-BDS (SC/HD): Includes adapter to fit all C14/C11/C9¼/C8/C6/C5 OTA’s
