    Default 18mm ES .



    Hi all
    i have a 18mm ES and use it mainly in my 16" F/4.4 . My focuser must be ran out to end for it to focus
    And it just does barely come in. I have been thinking about swapping the moon light focuser from my
    10" F/5 to my 16". I'll have to do some measuring to see if the draw tube in the moon light will be
    long enough.
    Think this is good thinking or just wasting my time I have to purchase an adapter to mount it on my 16"
    also about another 60.00 bucks.

    Why not email Ron Newman at MoonLite? Moonlite7@live.com

    I'll bet dollars to dog-biscuits he can build you an adapter, give you a longer focuser tube, and/or provide an extension for your existing MoonLite. He's the best.
