Hi all,

does anyone know how to disassemble it to recover the highlighted adjustment screw ???
From what I see I have reached the limit but I cannot remove the axis to retrieve the base that holds it and therefore to get to the screw underneath

Remove the four screws out on the corners of the square base. There may be shims under or pieces of tape to act as shims between the square base and the main body of the focuser. Lift off the knob assembly and you should have access to the inner workings. If you need to go further use a small (2mm ~ Allen key) to loosen the set screws that hold the Knobs to the shaft. Notice the tiny little set screw closest to the double knob side. Loosen that and the dual knob assembly should slide off. On the single knob side its a little different usually there is a little hole if you look into the hole you may see its smooth. slowly rotate the knob and you should see the set screw come into view. Loosen it and the single know should come off. That should get you in.
