  10. My 40,, does focus... I need just a little more inward focus.. foe my other 2" EPs... I will try to see what low profile focuser would be the best for the Mak Thank You... Mark
  11. I am very pleased with this Telescope.... HOWEVER... my 2" Eyepieces have an issue, The MEADE 40mm SWA comes to focus, But the other 2" EPs almost reach focus when the focuser is racked in all of the way. I just need a couple of more millimeters of inward focus, does any one have any suggestions... the views through the MEADE 40mm SWA are outstanding... Mark
