The ScopeStuff 2-Speed Linear Bearing swapped right out with my stock crayford on my 10XTi....the linear bearing allows it to "hold" a heavier load.

I'm thinking about replacing the focuser on my 10" f/4.8 Dob - a C10NGT OTA - with a Moonlite. The main reason is that I want enough in-focus for my eyepieces to work in filter wheels without an OCA.

Just remember with the SW dob colapseable that the focuser will need an extension if going with a low profile like a moonlite. Moonlite dies sell the extension, so you will be fine if going that route.
