Lunt Ca-K B1800 module in focuser?

Post by Stardust5858 »

Hi all, I came across a problem today with the Lunt CA-K module wedge. On my revelation 80ed the focuser has a tiny lip inside preventing the lunt module to only go in 50mm. Is it safe to use like this as it's not fully in if it reaches focus?

I used my 70mm Stellaview today which enables the module to go fully in.

Appreciate any thoughts.

Hi Nigella, I would have thought, that if the module locks in with the thumbscrew tightened, then that should be okay and when available-weather, see if focus is achieved, both with EP and Camera. 50mm/2" seems quite away-in... I can't see any safety issue thru the CaK module that way.

From what you describe, it is likely that the scopes draw-tube just won't need to travel-in as far as one might expect to be in focus...

I hope all is well there and no doubt you will show us - all is well.

Cheers
Terry
