Borg Intro

Front Focuser Assembly

The front focuser option is recommended for applications in which the most rigid possible coupling is required between a camera and a Borg 76 Ach/ED scope, especially in cases where the accessories behind the focuser may be heavy. The resulting configuration also has the benefit of better balance about the middle of the scope/camera combination. This configuration is particularly recommended for use in autoguider applications.

The front focuser configuration requires the 7130 set plus the 7507 adapter, both shown above.

The positions for the adapters are indicated above. The final configuration should appear as shown in the photograph below. The draw tube extension is at the rear as in the normal scope configuration, but the focuser has moved to the front section.

Note: The front focuser arrangement is not recommended for the Borg 100 Ach/ED configuration.
