Focuser replacement for Skywatcher 120 ed

Hi all
Everytime i tighten the focus lock on my new Skywatcher ED120 the focus shifts. Not happy.
Thinking of Ditching my factory supplied crayford focuser and replacing it with a suggested Moonlight focuser.
Can anyone direct me to somewhere on the net that shows how you take the old focuser off and fit the new one without deystroying ones expensive investment?
Please understand you are dealing with a man with 5 thumbs and technical ineptitude and i mean inept.

Regards
Carl

Hi Carl

There are 3 chromed crosshead screws spaced 120degs apart around the rear end of the tube where the original white focuser unit is attached

You'll have to remove these screws out totally and then pull out the original focuser and insert the new MoonLite one and use the 3 new stainless steel ones supplied by MoonlLite - it's that simple!

Couldn't go wrong with choosing the ML for sure!!

HTH
Cheers
Bill
