I use the JMI one for my xx12g though more expensive and not readily available at the moment.
I also use the Orion Accufocus on my refractor that I know can be used on a single speed crayford but not sure about a dual speed. I'm thinking it just has to be mounted on the side of the single speed focus knob. May want to call Orion to confirm.
I like both. The Orion version is bulkier, but less expensive, and though larger I also like its control box better than the JMI version

I may be mistaken, but I believe the OP wants an "AUTO" Focuser, not just a 'Moto' Focuser. Correct, OP?

This pic shows what used to come with the accufocus for attachment to a crayford focuser.
Don't know if it can be purchased separately now or not.
I sold these parts a few years ago so not much help to you accept to show what you need.
The accufocus actually works quite well on my R & P focuser.
