Focuser - which type
Posted 16 November 2013 - 04:30 PM
As a result, it looks as though I'll get a JMI Focuser instead, as that works by directly moving the mirror. Makes more sense to me. What have other people used?

I purchased Meade's zero image focuser, installed it as shown, but can't see how this works. The instructions talk of unlocking the mirror, but it looks like a LX option, not an LS option. This is for my LS 6.

Thanks for the quick reply. I finally installed it and it does plug into the scope controlled by the Autostar. I tried it indoors and the focusing must really be "fine" because the difference is not very noticeable when I get it to focus. How subtle is this system?

Use the manual focuser to get a good rough focus.
Now use the micro focuser to get precise focus.

Took the scope out last night and did not see any difference. This morning I pulled it out of the scope while still plugged in and saw no parts on this focuser moving when pushing the focus buttons. Hear the motor running but nothing else. Am I supposed to loosen something? Maybe I'm missing something because the focuser just sits on the back of the scope?

You are right. It does move after all, even if ever so slightly. Please help the newbie understand the concept. I have a 2" diagonal so it's moving that back and forth. And then?
