Hi All, I am trying to get a better focus system on my Meade RCX 10", hop you don't mined me asking your advice, I have a 2" moonlight focuser I wont to put in, when I first got scope used with eyepiece, length from back of scope to top of eyepiece was 279mm, if I put moonlight focuser, meade flip mirror, then camera from back of scope to ccd chip is 262mm do you think it will still focus.
