I posted in the equipment forum and got no response.  My Lunt 102 has a round focuser.

The ZWO EAF has flat mounting hardware.

Any way to mount a EAF?  If so which screws?

Thanks for any help.

Call Starizona and see if you can work it out.  Most focusers are round so it should not be an issue.

 

Notice Starizona has at least one adapter.

Thanks Greg.  I'll give them a call Tuesday.  Don't see a bracket that would work for me perhaps they can make something.

CN member buckeyestargazer will design and 3D print an adapter for you.

 

he made one for my Stellarvue SV80A which is also round body.

 

using his adapter I connected my ZWO-EAF. it works good.

 

send him a PM. he is very helpful.  smile.gif

Thank you spaceman!  Does your focuser have the same screw pattern?  Which ones did you use to mount the adapter?
