What is the minimum length of the focuser when mounted on the scope, and how deep is the cut for the nosepiece of the diagonal? I have a WO 2 inch dielectric diagonal with a Televue short visual back on my Celestron Nexstar 8" and this gives about 0.75 inch of clearance at zenith. Would your new focuser plus my WO 2" diagonal clear the base of my Nexstar at zenith if racked in all the way? I assume it is a 2" focuser since it looks like it has an adapter in it.

Thanks,

Tom

GRRRRRRR!
I ordered one this past Friday 03/10/06, selected and paid for 2 day Fed Ex air and it still has not arrived!!!!!:flame:

Lately more and more internet services seem to be playing a game with us buyers, offer us all kinds of shipping options and then ship when they please no matter what shipping we paid for. :mrevil:

Still waiting ... 03/17/06 :confused:

"Two-day" shipping has nothing to do with when an order ships. It does mean that when it ships, you'll get it in two days.

If you're ordering a product that's not in stock, or requires manufacturing time, complaining isn't going to help.

Per the TOS, the problem Levi is having regarding the order for a focuser need to be resolved between the vendor and Levi. I will leave this thread open for any questions people have for WO regarding the focuser. Please do not comment further on Levi's situation. Thanks,
Jason

It ARRIVED !!!!!! It's beauty too, totally typical of WO's products. Can't wait to try it out.

Only one MAJOR complaint...

The forecast for this weekend is rain. I keep going outside but it keeps getting cloudier. Is it always like this when something new arrives for a telescope? :bawling:

I broke down and ordered one too. I couldn't resist. That and the mirror flop was driving me nuts! Now I gotta develope some kind of mirror lock.
