SW ED80 focuser

Hi,

I'm after some advice on the SW ED80 kits.

Is the focuser on the BD version of the SW ED80 OK for AP (with DSLR)? Tossing up between getting an old Pro version + upgraded focuser, or BD version.

There doesn't appear to be any other differences between the two models except maybe the diagonal is better on the BD version?

Cheers

Not sure if the focuser on the BD version of the ED80 is good or not, I do know the focuser on the gold tube version to be not so good. I will say it does the job, but I was looking for something better, so I upgraded to a Moonlite.
