So if you all can't tell I'm obsessing a little over getting a Tak E-160 for imaging.  My latest question is, how good (or bad) are the stock Epsilon focusers for imaging?  With such a fast instrument a solid focuser and repeatable focusing will be of utmost importance.  And I'm quite demanding of my images and don't want to compromise.

 

I may well get an E-160 with a Feathertouch micro focuser, motorized with an Optec QuickSync motor, but I wonder if that's good enough and the whole focuser should be replaced.
