Need some direction please. Looking for the proper dovetail. It seem that the OTA is only drilled for the vixen 17.5 center spacing. The rear screw spacing is 3/4.Losmandy reads that they have it for the 17.5 but no mention of the 3/4 on the tail end.I ordered the orange Celestron and it's on its way back.

Metal focuser with or without the digital counter? Pretty sure all the older 9.25s were only drilled for the Losmandy rail up until about 1995 when they started making the ASGT mounted ones (and had the rubber covered focuser knob. Don't remember the exact year. One I owned was the CG-9.25, the one that came with Losmandy size rail and metal focuser with digital counter mounted on a Losmandy G-9 mount.

It is a 2007 version. In 2008 and on up the have the shorter rail and wider screw spacing. It does have the rubber focus knob but no counter.
