Quote:The earliest I can take the measurement is like 10th of March.
Quote:Sedat, here is latest from Wayne, "All 3* versions of the FSQ106ED should all have the same thread dimension of the OTA which is M133X1"; what does M133X1 mean, I don't know. Any ideas? If you know what he means then we may not need to measure the threads. Thx

•FSQ-106EDXIII.....................[without ‘Captain’s Wheel’]
Quote:Finally, I am able to confirm that the thread is M133x1.

Quote:A drop of acetone in the four hex screws at the bottom of the focuser, wait a while, then tighten them exactly the same amount.
Quote:This is a real beauty! I want to thank you and Wayne to present this as a tangible option to us.Unfortunately, current owners have already paid for the stock focuser. Unless, someone has a real heavy rig to hang, he has to contend with the stock focuser. Another problem I see here is losing the ability to play with the back focus as necessary. When you chose this option, you will be stuck with 1.5" focuser travel.

ONLY now if Takahashi would also offer one out of the box? Will try contacting Art of TNR; your support will be greatly appreciated. RegardsImage...

Quote:What do you mean by " loose the ability to play with the back focus as necessary" ?
Quote:Rex, IIRC it should be 3-4 cm as you are guesstimating
