You Deserve It!!!Pros: Cons: Comments:
No it’s not cheap, yes it’s awesome!!! My stock focuser for my Meade LX90-ACF 8” left a lot to be desired. I tried the Peterson Engineering upgrade to the stock focuser first. Yes it worked, and yes it was better, it still lacked that precision and feel I was looking for. I finally ponied up for the FTM-M8, and I just can’t say enough how pleased I am with it. My LX90 now has that Surgical Smooth Precision feel to it, and is a joy to use!!! The Coarse and Fine Focus adjustments are so smooth and a joy to use now!!! Thank You Starlight Instruments and Agena Astro for this truly amazing piece of equipment. Did I mention how easy it is to install, I would recommend taking your original focuser, and adjust it CCW to the stop. Once you remove the three retaining screws, to slide the mirror assembly in and out about 10 Times to redistribute the grease for it. Then remove the old focuser, install the new focuser, and Presto!!! That’s it!!!
