Have you motorized the focuser on a TS130 f7 with the 3.7 inch RAP focuser and how did you do it? 

 

Thanks

I used the Rigel nStep.  He has the proper bracket available, it's used on a number of scopes.

Oh man...that's a sweet looking setup. Do you use SGP for autofocusing?

Awesome! I just ordered a TS130 f7 with the 3.7 inch focuser today. I have a spare Moonlite stepper motor left over from a previous project, so I'm going to try and adapt that first. But it's great to know there is an excellent back up plan with the ZWO in case the Moonlite is a no-go.
