High Res Stepper Motor with Slip clutch kit will fit all MoonLite model focusers. The kit is customer installed, and includes the motor, bracket, and all hardware. This kit is sold in 3 basic configurations: Stand alone (motor only – no controller), with MiniV2 controller, or with DRO Dual Port Display Controller.
Please note this new Slip clutch version requires a MoonLite focuser that has tapped holes in the upper flange. Early MoonLite focusers may not have the correct upper flange in place depending on how old the focuser is. A replacement upper flange part can be purchased along with the motor kits if needed. Please check your focuser to make sure the tapped holes are available in the upper flange, see photo below for tapped hole locations. If you need to purchase a replacement flange please click the following link.
MoonLite makes 6 mounting brackets for the new High res stepper motor with slip clutch. Please confirm what model/ style bracket you need for your focuser.
Top row brackets are for CR model Newtonian focusers. Middle row bracket are for all 2.5″ format focusers such as CRL, CHL, CSL, and CFL models. Bottom row brackets are for 2″ format focuser such as CS and CF models.
Brackets on left side are for non Shaft lock equipped focusers, while brackets on right side are longer to fit focusers that do have the shaft lock option. Please be sure to pick the correct bracket at the bottom of this page when selecting your motor kit. Single speed focusers use the same non shaft lock bracket.
