Yep, as far as know, they all come with that plastic fosuser. Even the 16"! I know a guy who bought the 16", changed it to the Crayford. That seems to be the focuser of choice. I'm not real familire with them. I don't have a dob. Seems like those dobs are always a work in progress. Every one I know with one is always doing something to it. Trying to make it better. The guy with the 16" not only changed the focuser, he cut the middle out of the tube and turned it into a truss mount. Not Me!
That's it;
