New setup ! Thinking of getting this setup for some casual stargazing for when I move into my new house !

They are excellent scopes. Large and heavy though.

You will probably want more eyepieces plus some collimation tools, a Telrad and a RACI optical finder.

While the Moonlite focusers are very good but why not try the stock one first ? - they are not that bad at all. I would probably invest in the list above before rushing to upgrade the focuser.

Agree with John, the supplied focuser is really pretty good and easy to adjust the tension so it's nice and smooth but firm.

I fitted the Astrozap shroud and it is great, stays on the scope and collapses down with it when needed.

Yours is not the Goto model that I have so is lighter weight, but I placed mine on a dolly board to wheel it around the garden which you might want to consider. :)

Sorry guys .. I posted the pics by mistake, my intention was to elaborate a bit on why I chose this setup and for any opinions on how to improve it but I couldn’t delete it and start again !! Sorry if it sounded a little abrupt
