EOI - Trade plus some cash my way.

Just an EOI at the moment, I have a Feathertouch focuoser on my C925 (CPC tube de forked) and I am looking to fit a motorised focuser to it, pretty much all options open to me will work best with the factory focus knob, which in my case is years gone.


Looking at a swap of a stock CPC925 focuser plus some cash for my feathertouch. Nothing wrong with the feathertouch, it is in perfect working order, just it holds me back from what I want to do.

If anyone has a CPC925 stock focuser they simply want to sell I would look at that too.

Paul , what mounting plate does your scope have ? as I have the old one off my C9.25 after fitting a FT .

It's plate is 79mm x 53mm with 4 x 1/4 inch holes at 38mm x 72mm .
The focus knob its self fits in a hole 24mm in dia that's off centre by 5mm on the 79mm length and 20mm to the centre from the side that's 53mm .

Let me know if yours is the same as there are 2 styles and if yours is the same as mine you can have it for postage .

Brian.

I have the other type, but I am pretty sure the internals are the same, the mount plate is replaced when you fit the motorised focus setup anyway. I will grab it and try it out please.

PM me some details so I can send you some postage money and I will see how I go.

I know the base plates that screw to the back of the scope are different, but if the internals (bearing and threaded nut) are the same that is all that matters for my application. Have you got a photo of the internals?
