222mm F7.3 rebuild 2012

Focuser is plastic with metal eyepiece holder but surprisingly good with very smooth movement and no mechanical vices whatsoever. Lightness of the focuser / diagonal assembly enables low balance point, small light mirror box and short rocker box keeping everything light & flexing low so only 'play' in the movement comes from the aluminium tube which is low anyway although image wobbles a little in moderate breeze and immediately after focusing.
