This bundle allows you to replace the SkyWatcher Esprit 100's stock focuser with the high precision Prima Luce Lab ESATTO 3" robotic microfocuser and the adapters needed to connect the Esprit's 1x field flattener.
The kit contains:
- ESATTO 3" robotic microfocuser
- ESATTO 3" adapter for SkyWatcher Esprit 100
- 65mm extension tube for ESATTO 3"
- M81 25mm extension tube for ESATTO 3"
Note: This kit does not include the 131mm PLUS support rings shown in the photographs.
The SkyWatcher ESPRIT 100 ED telescope has a Crayford focuser that doesn't offer a high load capacity so it is not recommended for long exposure astrophotography with heavy cameras or accessories. This special bundle adds ESATTO 3", the new generation robotic focuser that you control by any Windows computer by connecting it to a USB port, or via WiFi by using ESATTO app on your smartphone or tablet with the Virtual HandPad.
Thanks to the 65mm (to be installed between tube and focuser) and 25mm (to be installed between focuser and camera) extension tubes included with the kit, you can reach the focus with the ESATTO 3" focuser. The kit includes the adapter to thread the 1,0x field flattener to the ESATTO 3" focuser.
On the camera side, ESATTO has a M81x1 male thread to connect and manually rotate many cameras and accessories by adding the optional adapters with stop rings. ESATTO 3" has 25mm of focuser tube travel, a 8kg payload capacity and an incredible resolution of 0,04 micron per step.
