I've searched for the thread size that attaches the focuser to the body of the AT65EDQ and can't seem to find it anywhere. I measured it to be about 73mm but can't seem to find any adapters to fit that size. Am I missing something?

Moonlight Instruments makes an adapter that mounts their focusers. I am sure they could tell you what the thread size is.

Thanks Tamiji, from the specs page at Starlight it appears to be an M74X1 thread on the scope/focuser attachment point.
