Would anyone who has this scope (or even the non-intelliscope version) be able to tell me what the mounting hole spacing is on the stock focuser?

 

Thanks!

I have an older Orion 10i.  The spacing between the 4 screws that hold the focuser (I assume that is what you mean) is about 3 3/8 inches, or 85-86 mm.  I think they may have changed the type of focuser in recent years, so if you have a newer scope that may be different.  I suggest you check with Orion technical support.

Good luck!
