I’m looking for recommendations on a good electronic focuser to use with my RASA 11”. I tried the Celestron Focus motor with no luck. I won’t go I to a bunch of detail but after trying two units from Celestron the required retro kit just doesn't work well with my particular ota and the motor.

Anyway I’d love to hear recommendations on other products that will work from other owners using them and any pictures would be even more appreciated. This issue has been far more frustrating than it needed to be and I’m just wanting to move on to something that will work.

P.S. Mods, if this is in the wrong area please send it where it belongs, thanks!

Instructions are pitiful on Celestron but I have it working perfectly with rasa11

I use the Starizona Microtouch. Works great.

Thanks Eddie, I ended up going that route as well.
