For Sale: Optec Gemini Focusing Rotator

Hot Sky product from 2016

Optec engineers have developed a completely new concept for combining telescope focus and camera rotation functions into a single robust, yet compact package.  Rather than simply adding a rotator onto the end of a focuser drawtube, Gemini was designed from inception with a rotating drawtube providing superior strength and rigidity for heavy camera payloads.  Featuring four lead-screws and four linear bearings, Gemini can easily handle 10-kg. (22-lbs.) payload packages without flexure.  Full 360-degree rotation is a built-in function of the Gemini with a full 1/2" of linear travel.  At the center of travel, Gemini measures a mere 2.45" in thickness.”

Online price is $3595 offering it for $2600. I am only selling this as I have gone a different way with focusing solutions.

Focuser is in excellent shape. Great for heavy, large sensor format cameras.
