Ahhh the pleasure of a Feathertouch. It's not a cost it's an investment that pays dividends for life. :)

Great Dan, it's certainly quality stuff, I just had some friends bring back a feather touch focuser from N/Y for me. :)

Wonderful investment there Daniel, congratulations :)

I am considering one myself for a future scope and have discovered that the rear lens element doesn't have to be removed for collimation if you use a 'Glatter type' barlowed laser.

I was a bit peeved, had to pay $13 shipping to get it to N/Y though. So asked them to bring back a Lumicon Oiii as well to soften the blow. :)

Seeing how easy it is to remove the lens elements to collimate I can't see me bothering with spending money on any glatter kit.
