Has anyone been able to install the ZWO EAF on the Sky-Watcher Quattro 200P? In all the images I'm seeing it looks like there is only one place to mount the EAF bracket, in the middle. If you've had success mounting one, please share some images. 

 

Thanks

Here's an image I found of mine.  The adapter that comes with the EAF fits to the focuser with only a single bolt, but I haven't had any problems with it.

Does anyone know why the EAF is made to fit on the course adjustment of the focuser?

Would it not work better on the fine adjustment?

I was considering getting one but this puzzles me.

 

Thanks

Maybe to protect the motor from running a locked focus tube? You dont really need the lockscrew anymore. The eaf is the new brake
