Quote:Are there any detailed step by step instructions for this whole process in some past thread or otherwise? For instance, I'm not sure I even know the difference between a pinion and a gib Eric
Quote:Maybe this will help:Reworking a Synta Rack and Pinion Focuser
Quote:While for now, I'll use the stock rack & pinion focuser; any recommendations for an upgraded focuser (less than $200).

Quote:Gary, did the screw holes line up to mount the Orion focuser to the Celestron Scope, or did you have to drill? I want to be sure to order something that will "line up" so the swap out will be simple....then there's that dreaded "C" word (it's a refractor, the "C" word here is NOT easy like a dob). At least once it's collimated it'll be done. The scope shop just collimated it...almost hate to ruin that.....
