Our plastic rack/pinion gears have stipped.  I have searched for replacemt parts for our out of warrenty unit, but have had no luck.

Where can one purchase this item.

Are there any other companies focusers that can be mounted on this telescope without major modifications?  As I understand it, the lens at the bottom of the tube is integral to the function of the optics.

Thanks, Jay

Try calling Meade and see if they may have 1 laying around.
If not they can probably recommend an after market focuser to work on it.
I think JMI or several other companys may sell them.
Aslo try calling a local dealer in your area for suggestions.
I know places like OPT has a great knowledgable staff.
