More Blue Dual Speed Focuser Addition.

Recommended Posts

In the Postman thread I noted the arrival of a More Blue dual speed unit for my Vixen SD103.

I have had the Vixen dual speed unit on previous scopes and was considering another for the SD103,
but having been shown the More Blue unit owned by Tim @Franklin a while back, I knew the direction of travel.

Have held off as various issues with work at the minute, but in the end went 'what the heck' and went for it.

Arrived direct from Japan this morning and very impressed with the quality of the unit.

Fitted this evening, very easy to fit and so smooth and the reduction gearing feels great.

And fitted to my SD103.

The fixing plate on the More Blue unit is far heavier duty than the Vixen plates,
This helps make the whole thing so much more rigid.
