Reading all around about the focuser on SW 72ed but can't find definitive answer. Can you get focus with various diagonal and eyepieces combination or is an extension a given? Anybody that uses it for visual willing to chime in?

With my 2" diagonal and various eyepieces, both 1.25 and 2", it focuses with no extension. With a 1.25" solar wedge, it’s ok too. Great little scope. If anything, I feel it’s lacking a little on inward focus rather than outward.

Screw it. Ordering this. I am looking for a month now for some 60-70(76, 78? :D ) apo (fluorite ??) to come along for me to try it out - missed fc60 the other week. Even posted wanted ads and nothing. Giving it a go with this little ed if no one comes forward tonight. If it focuses let there be 72ed.
