Quote:Well, before you do that, make sure that there is sufficient clearance for the focuser tube when it is in its new forward position. If there are baffles close to the end of the current focuser tube, moving the focuser in might not buy you anything because it could be that the front of the focuser will now hit the baffle.I have this situation in my 6" APO. The baffle prevents me from cutting the tube to much because I am already almost hitting it.I could go to a shorter focuser tube, but then I might not have enough travel to reach focus with my 31mm Nagler, and that would make me sad.
