Post by: Skipper Billy on 16:39:38, 12 June, 2017
New baby on the way.......      Explore Scientific 208mm f3.9 Carbon Hex astrograph.

Particularly keen to see the focuser - its hexagonal shape and 'claimed' to be a slop free rack and pinion - we will see - I will do a mini review when it arrives.

I've read good things about that hexafoc.
Hope it delivers.
Waiting for the review.

that should be a fantastic fast imaging scope. Small critical focus zone so fitting a motor to the focuser and going autofocus would pay dividends.

Yep. I am thinking of a Lakeside - Ian King has agreed to make a bracket to suit.

Lakeside focusers are my choices... rugged... & dependable!
