Does anyone make an add-on Microfocuser for Meade 80 mm ED APO Series 5000? Or is there a generic microfocuser that would fit that shaft?

Hello, I just finished a project to add a diy focuser to my Meade triplet.

Don't know anything but it did occur to me that because of the close association with Meade and Explore Scientific, you might be able to fit a ES micro-focuser.. I
