Hello,

I was reading some threads and am making people aware of a new product I've developed. I've hesitated to post this informatin but considered the fact that so many folks have the same problems that it would be benificial. I'm doing it in the interest of the community and just trying to make people aware of a product that can solve some real problems that everybody is talking about.

I originally made this unit for myself and a friend to overcome the backlash that exists in the stock mechanism.

I've developed a totally new focuser assembly that virtually eliminates backlash in the focuser mech. I think you'll like the design. It is spring loaded in the thrust direction and also has considerations for backlash in the connecting rod/pin connection.

I would appreciate any feedback offered as I'm trying to make this available to everyone at a reasonable price with the features they desire.

Thank for your consideration.
