Lunt Pressure Tuner Question

Hi All,

There's a 60mm H-Alpha scope (B1200 - Pressure Tuner - Crayford Focuser) on its way that I'm planning to attach to a Celestron C5+ mount. This is single-arm fork mount driven by a small 9V battery with the arm on the left side looking from the back (eyepiece end). Could someone tell me if the pressure tuner cylinder is on the left or right side of the OTA? I've seen pictures where is appears on either side but some of the pictures may be mirror images. Maybe the focuser rotates allowing either configuration? I'm hoping the cylinder is on the right so it will work with the C5+ mount.

Thanks, Tom

the Cylinder is on the right side, but you can always easy switch, the focuser is attached by 3 set screws, open them , you can rotate the focuser as you want :-)

best wishes

Tom -

You can rotate the components into any orientation you wish. There are set screws to allow for this. I changed out my set screws with stainless steel thumb screws, eliminating the need for those pesky, easy-to-drop allen wrenches!
