I finially got around to fitting the new FT micro focuser onto my sweet C9.25 , and man what a nice bit of kit !! , I looked across the way at a power pole as its cloudy and I cant detect any image shift even with the 10/1 knob , this is going to make this scope so nice to use now , a great addition !!.
It took all of 10 minutes to fit using FT's instructions off the web , easy .
The 9.25" is a lovely visual lunar and planetary telescope. With the conditions we get here constantly under the north Atlantic jet stream it can deliver the most resolution that most nights will allow.
Starlight produce some exquisite instruments. I have just purchased a finder bracket fro them to use with a 10x40 Swift Instruments finder on my Istar 204 WFT.
I have a Feather touch focuser on my TV127 and it is beautiful.
I am sure it will make nailing focus with your SCT a pleasurable experience.

The weather is looking good so far today and if it stays this way I will take the C9.25 out tonight and look at Saturn and mars using my bino-viewers at 184x , 115x, 100x and 63x ,, will be nice I think .

I had the pleasure of speaking with a woman from London not so long ago at a local public viewing. She said she had never looked through a telescope. I said I wondered how that could be since Great Britain was the "Motherland" of astronomy. She was amazed and pleased to hear that fact. Your "astronomical" success is a tribute to your persistence, ingenuity and patience despite predominately unfavorable weather and high latitude. My hats off to you and your fellow countrymen.
