not sure if this is in the correct section, but here goes.
Does the zero shift focus unit, override trhe need of the maunal focus on a LX200 12"? by these i mean, do you still need to get a rough focus, and then fine tune with the Zero Shift Unit?

It does not override the need to use the manual focus. You get a rough focus, and then fine tune it with the focuser.

The only advantage to the electric focuser on it is to focus while you are a bit away from the scope (sa at your computer -- within reach of the hand controller) to do fine focus while imaging.

I guess my only reason for previous post is that you can manipulate the focuser without getting much (if any) image shift by hand -- big improvement over my clasic LX-200.
