Does anybody know of a commercially available electric focuser for a skywatcher 127 mak. or anything that could be modified to fit one.

nothing commercially available but you can make one out of a RC servo motor and a few little bits and bobs :)

the auto focuser arrived today, fits perfectly and no slop in operation. the variable speed range is impressive. shame about the clouds out but playing with it today i know its a winner.:thumbsup:
