Hello, please can someone assist me with this. I don't know if I am doing it wrong or what, but I am having quite a bit of trouble.
I have a ZWO EAF I am trying to connect to my 6" Orion Newtonian AStrograph.
I thought this would be relatively easy. I was wrong.
The issue is, the bottom only has 5 screw slots, The middle one is the tension screw for the focus. The LOCK screw is actually a giant one on top I believe, thats how it seems to work at least.
The Tensioner bolt is big and a hand turned screw. I guess I should mount in through this, but the screw is not long enough due to the curved bottom to seat itself in the tension screw hole and still apply tension. I thought of using the screws for anti-vibration or w/e, the smaller lock screws. I could thread that in to tension the focuser, while not having the rest stick out and block the mount, but then again, the other screw holes.
The smaller screws you see, I have tried taking them out as well, and mounting them through the EAF plate. It does not reach up into the body enough to properly connect and meet the treads within the focuser, so the screw just falls out when as tight as possible.
Here are some pictures
