Quote:I called them to see if they had them in stock and I was told they were. I ordered it but after five days and not receiving any notice of shipment I emailed them about it and received a reply that they didn't have them in stock after all so they put in an order for them to fill my order. A 2" crayford focuser would be a bonus but looking at your picture it doesn't look like a crayford style focuser. It looks like a 2" R&P focuser with nice focusing knobs! Am I wrong? Even if it is a 2" R&P focuser it would not be a problem for me because I know know how to make them work smoothly with no slop! Looking at the pictures at Woodland Hills it looks like a 2" focuser but I wasn't sure. And thanks for posting and your picture with it!

Quote: The description says something about a 1.25" STAR DIAGONAL. Normally the term "star diagonal" would refer to a diagonal mirror in a refractor or cat, so I'm not sure...

Quote:Compare that focuser with the old 1.25" rack and pinion focuser with big focus wheels, see the picture below taken from CN'er fuadramsey's Great, your pics convinced me!. An even better deal than I thought. I have the GSO 2" barlow like yours. Thanks again for the more detailed pics and clarification. Hope mine ships soon!

Quote:Locoman, I am sorry you were not informed sooner about them being out of stock at that time. These little guys sell fast but are a a regular stock item. A few more arrived yesterday, I believe 4 of them if Im not mistaken.
Quote: Can't beat that price for a 6" scope with a 2" focuser.

Quote:Oh, that's tempting. I berate myself for selling my Omni 150 for some pittance a few years ago, and I'd be happy to have one back.
