I may be able to acquire an Apogee 2" SCT Crayford focuser for my 8i but wondered whether or not I'd then face more problems? In particular I was concerned about the clearance between the scope base and focuser/diagonal?
It's an issue but there's a solution. Check out Ray's Brackets at www.buyastrostuff.com - they permit moving the optical tube forward which solves both the clearance and the balance problems when mounting heavy accessories on the back.

This one goes a little further than I would feel comfortable with.
