I have a 9 month old 10" lx200 - the focuser seems to have a significant amount of play when reversing the focusing direction. The focus (annoyingly)seems to continue past sharp on its own particularly when turning clockwise. Is this due to the thread on the focuser rod, or a problem with lubrication on the baffle tube?
Any advice would be most welcome as getting a sharp image currently involves a degree of anticipation!
