Atjous, you idea gave me another idea and I posted an image of my home made focus lever, you can see it in GALLERY under catagory EQUIPMENT. ETX90 Focus Lever. Made from a rubber cane bottom piece that fits over MEADE's focus knob and a reinforced plastic spray tube.

My pleasure, Rick! Nice setup in that picture, and an effective solution, I suppose!
For me, the clothespin solution is a true keeper.
