Quote:Hello Mike,from what I've heard the single speed focuser on this Meade product is smoother than its double speed sibling.I do not remember who wrote it, but they claimed that they'd rather have single speed focuser which is smooth than worse quality double speed focuser.But I am only referring to what I've heard, I do not have personal experience with the single speed focuser.Wish you all the best Frank.
