Hello All:

 

I have not seen much info at all on the availability of an electric/motorized focuser for the ETX-125.  I am mainly interested in better accuracy during my micrometer sessions.  I have seen a few available for the ETX-90, but none for the 125. 

 

Will the ETX-90 focuser work for the 125? (even with some adaptation, I'll give it a shot).  Can I fit a generic (or other manufacturer's) auto-focuser?  Does anyone have experience on the subject?  Thanks in advance for any assistance :-)

There is a way to adapt the electric focuser for the 90 to work on the 125. I don't remember if it's been posted here or not, but I know you can find the instructions on Mike Weasner's Mighty ETX site.
