Quote:Thanks for the input, all! Just got the confirmation email, I have a classic red two speed Moonlite headed my way.Everything I read about ML has them "just" behind Feathertouch in terms of smoothness, and there is an almost $100 price difference.Ultimately, the clear explanations on the website, and ease of ordering what I needed were what tipped the decision in ML's favor.Note to merchants: In this day and age, when all else is equal (or is close to) your website is crucial. In a lot of cases, it is what makes the difference. In this case, it certainly did...

Quote:I don't think there's any doubt that the ML has more adapters for more scopes than FT. ML seems to be more motivated and less complacent in that regard. I currently have eight FT focusers and no ML focusers, but I think that's likely to change.
