I just bought my first scope, a meade starfinder 6" on a GEM! I was considering buying that 5" DS from meade, but then i learned about RA and DEC and how an equatorial mount works, so I went with the higher quality scope. ANyways, after reading all the positive and negative things about this scope, I have seen one recurring negative which everyone is in agreement with. The focuser on this scope is terrible. Could anyone recomend a replacement focuser for this scope? Nothing fancy, as I don`t plan on using this scope for photography, just something well-built (not plastic). Thanks!
