Anyone with a Skywatcher 120ED or Equivelent?

I've been using it for imaging and bought the .85x Orion Reducer/Corrector that is made for this scope. However, its made to screw on the draw tube while the Antares Crayford requires a push type.
There are adapters made for this that are available in Europe but I haven't had any luck getting them to ship to North America. Also, I haven't found any adapters in North America. However, there are some that convert SCT threads to push type.
So, does anyone that own this type of scope and know if the threads are SCT size or, if not, where I can get an adapter in North America to convert them to push type?

I'm from Toronto Ontario too.
Also planning to buy the same Gold tube
Sky Watcher 120 ED.
I am aware that the standard focuser that
comes with it is a single speed.
Is it possible for me to upgrade the focuser
to a dual speed
Thank you very much.

I will definitely consider the 2" Feather Touch focuser.

Wonderful scope deserves the Moonlite or Feathertouch!

I am saving for a Moonlite focuser now.
Very nice to hear that from a very experienced astronomer like you.
And most specially from someone who has the same exact telescope.
Appreciate it much.

If I had read this thread earlier that may have helped you, as Borg has a #7425, 2" nosepiece to M57 thread, and tons of M57 thread adapters.
Astro Hutech's website has all the components and pricing, they are located in California.
Just in case anyone else needs a 57mm threaded component.
