You dropped the tube?!?!?! I am guessing that aged you about 20 years!

Not just the tube my new camera was attached also + filter wheel ,guide camera and Borg 60 as I was trying to balance new set up . I felt sick just stood and looked at it for a few seconds I was lucky it was only the focuser .

Nice setup. Wear nitrile gloves to remove. The rubber on those things sticks to anything like toffee to the carpet. You can tell I have experiance..... With toffee and carpets. 👍😁😁
