Unfortunately I do not have any detailed pics but you can see where Focuser is attached to dovetail

Good luck
Interesting idea bolting the Focus Cube to the dovetail instead of the focuser itself. Considering the design appears to be based on bolting it to the focuser did you have any issues doing this?

Not sure what the layout of the 120 box is though
Yeah, it sounds similar - I could just ditch the finderscope from the case entirely and it should fit. I don't actually use it Not sure about the Esprit 100 case but the 120 has a thin black rigid divider between the main OTA foam area and the accessories foam area. Did the 100 case have the same and did it cut OK?

Pic of mine attached.
