Sometimes its cheaper to buy new to get exactly what you want , but then again some folk like to tinker with what they have

Thanks for your thoughts.
I want a focuser that performs like those on my refractors. Mounting the camera in the centre is not easy as it looks but it has advantages if I can make it work. Hopefully a bit of scrap and a working $169 focuser may deliver. And maybe a osc camera instead???
