So I have here an extremely clean, 2007 Meade #1247 Electric Focuser assembly for the ETX-125. This will work with both the EC and PE models. I am not aware if it will work with the ETX-105. I don't know how long these have been out of production, but they are clearly not available anymore. A pity because the ETX-125 has outstanding optics and these are a must when pushing the scope for high magnifications on the planets when the seeing allows.

This will come with the focuser unit, new 9v battery, speed controller, Allen wrench for locking the drive gear set screw, bronze drive gear with set screw, original bags, original print instructions, and the original box. Please note that this IS MISSING the 1.5-inch long #6-32 mounting screw. But now that you know the exact size you need, it may not be horribly difficult to acquire one. But until you get this screw, you won't be able to properly secure the focuser drive.

Do note that if you have this plugged into your ETX-125 control panel and that the mount is being powered by an AC power adapter, you don't need to use the battery.

Weight of focuser motor assembly = 4.3 ounces
Weight of controller without battery = 2 ounces

Operations are perfect and controller is quite responsive. Cosmetics are great on the box, near mint on the focuser unit, mint on the controller and gear, and great on the instructions, which are fully legible.

I sold both my EXT-125ECs, so I cannot use this nifty device anymore, or until I break down and get another ETX-125.

Price doesn't include shipping. Will ship to anyone anywhere.
