I've never really understood why scopes designed to carry a heavy camera use crayford focussers rather than a rack and pinion +/- a focus motor as the standard. They certainly exist. see

The crayford is lovely and smooth and an eyepiece slips in beautifully but I like a solid attachment for my camera that doesn't use a nosepiece adaptor on the front.
The R & P focusser on my vixen scope is much more reliable than the expensive Moolight crayford on my refractor and is easier to lock down.
