      #5660390 - 02/03/13 05:19 PM

Anyone with a FS-102 and a binoviewer experience slippage in the focuser when pointing at zenith?

I also have a Feathertouch 2 speed add-on.

Thanks,

Tom

I had that setup and there were no problems. That big brake knob is your friend.

Seriously, I was impressed with that little FT micropinion!
