I have just acquired a 210 and want to add a better fosuser to avoid mirror flop.

But I have trouble to pick the best one.

What brand is the best one?

Sure- my experience with a "in the focal train" focuser was with a William Optics rack and pinion specifically made to screw on/attach to the visual back of scts and I used it on my Celestron 9.25/11 scts.

It was a good focuser.

Now, my Stowaway has a Feathertouch focuser, and it is very nice.

If you can acquire a Starlite focuser for your 210, that would be great. I have also read good things about Baader's steeltrack focusers.

Any of the three you mention are interesting.

But I cant figure out of the various flanges or adapters to order with them.

This link takes you to the mewlon adapter for the feather touch focusers.

Below, the last post discusses the Baader Steeltrack

This thread should help.
