Quote:Did you really crank down the tension screw or did you have to keep playing around with it till you came up with the perfect tension level that was both strong enough to hold your camera in place yet loose enough so that you could easily adjust the focus knobs?I hope it is not too finicky because I still must be able to use my electronic focuser while operating everything remotely.
Quote:John, my electronic focuser attaches to the larger focusing knob and only gives me one speed.
No, I have never taken apart the focuser. Is it hard to do? Can you point me to some detailed instructions on how to do it? I don't find much when doing a general internet search for this older model ZS 80mm.

“I am the only person to ever ace a 1951 USAF resolution test. My 'to observe' list says 'done'. I do not use charts or atlases when I starhop; men do not use maps. One of my sketches won an SBIG deep sky imaging contest. I am the life of star parties I have never attended. I never say anything looks like a faint fuzzy - not even a faint fuzzy. Pilots aim green laser pointers at me. Don Pensack proofreads my CN forum posts.” - The Most Interesting Astronomer in the Universe
