Electric focuser mount for esprit

I have (mostly) completed soldering all the components for the myfocuserpro PCB and very close to completing the project. I originally intended for it to be used with my ed80 but having purchased the esprit, I now require another mounting platform for the stepper. I'm not too handy with 3d printing or rendering a design on cad or similar softwares, does anyone have a pre-designed or link to a pre-designed bracket for the esprit 100ed? Many thanks in advance!

I'd really like a motorised focuser for my Esprit 100ED. Where did you get yours from?

Hi Marke,

What focus software do you use?

Cheers
