  • Metal Magnet Ring for Homing-Sensor of Steeldrive II
  • Fitting for Baader Diamond Steeltrack® focusers
  • Easy to fit

If you have upgraded a Baader Diamond Steeltrack® with e.g. with a 2" Clicklock S58 eyepiece holder (#2956258), or if you use an adaptor to a thread (T-2, M48 or M68), then this Metal Magnet Ring is an alternative to the simple magnet holder which is included as standard in the scope of delivery of the Steeldrive II (#2957165).

The Steeldrive II motor unit features a contactless (wearfree) homing sensor (hall-effect sensor). It is activated by a magnet attached to the moving part of the focuser. It enables precise homing and repeatable approach of saved absolute positions as well as reference of the mechanical end-stop.

This Metal Magnet Ring is attached between the eyepiece clamp and the eyepiece extension. To install the magnet ring, at first you need to remove the 2" eyepiece holder or the thread adapter for e.g. T-2, M48 or M68. It must be installed parallel to the Steeldrive II.
