Starlight Inst. Feathertouch SCT Microfocuser for Celestron CPC 800, NexStar 6SE, NexStar 8SE, & RASA8The FeatherTouch SCT MicroFocuser by Starlight Instruments provides the smoothest control for fine focusing Celestron CPC800 telescopes.
Two focus knobs allows for standard or 1/10th-speed focusing, making the FeatherTouch MicroFocuser extremely accurate. Excellent for both imaging or visual observing, this focuser is precision-machined and anodized black with a brass fine-focus knob.
The SCT FeatherTouch MicroFocuser is easily installed in place of the original focus knob on the Celestron CPC800, the Celestron NexStar 6SE, the NexStar 8SE telescope, and the RASA 8-Inch. A built-in stop prevents the primary mirror from detaching from the focuser.
This model is not compatible with other 8-inch SCTs.

Worth every dollar. Faster to dial in perfect focus with focus assistant programs. Item description does not mention for the Edge 8HD but this is the one to get. OPT will confirm if you call them.
I have purchased several of the Feathertouch line of focusers all with excellent build quality.
Installation can also be done in about 10 minutes if you look at the enclosed CD-ROM. The touch feeling was also good, and the stress during focusing was gone. It was cheaper than $ 100 buy at shops in Japan.
The focused was easy to install, just follow the instructions. Once install easy operation. I haven't had the chance to test it on night sky's do to clouds but looking forward trying it soon. Thanks OPT for working with me to get the right focused for my cpc 800hd.
smooooth, this is the best focuser I have ever used. it works perfectly. 10min install and it comes with everything needed. for imaging it is a must have. it is a little pricey but well worth the money.
I bought this focuser to replace the standard focuser which I wasn't to fond of. Installation was a breeze, and very straight forward. Use was just as simple, and it really is a feathertouch system and is very sensitive with minimal to no friction for the 10:1 focuser knob. Kept my focus right through the night. I would definitely recommend it to someone. Regards Johannes
