Wondering if anyone has added a ZWO EAF to the Skywatcher 250p goto dob? If so can this be done without changing out the focuser?

CN user kb38758 has on his Orion XT10G Goto Dob:

He regularly uses his Goto Dob for astrophotography and has it automatically refocus periodically.

 

I’m pretty sure he did it without changing out the focuser, but it’s likely the focusers are different despite both being Synta scopes.
