Anyone out there have one of these for their SCT? If you what do you think of it? Will it work with a focal reducer? Thanks.

Hallo John,

I have a william optics crayford focuser for my C8 and i love it.
You still need the normal focuser on your SCT. because the total travel of the crayford is equal to 7 a 8 turns of your SCT's focuser.
And no, i still didn't find a way to use it with a .63 reducer.

Ditto Steve, it's a great focuser but I was afraid it wouldn't work with the reducer. The rotating feature sure is nice though.
