Diamond Form Drive System
Simply removed the 2" visual back and banged it straight on. Loosened a couple of screws allowing the steeltrack to be rotated so that the primary skymax focuser didnt conflict and all good to go. First real chance to have a play and what a difference to fine focusing. Definitely sold on Baader stuff. Superb.
I got this focuser to use it with my Skymax180 pro telescope and it works nicely, the focuser feels solid and well made, it is easy to fit and handle my heavy eyepieces no problem. Highly recommended.
Purchased on of these for my Skywatcher Mak150 Pro as the stock focuser is very hit and miss. Although I had previously used a SW crayford style I wasn't that happy with it. This Baader one is very nice quality and super smooth to use. The first one I received from FLO had a small chip and the fine adjustment knob was loose in the box and what I wasn't aware of at the time was it felt quite rough compared to this replacement one, FLO were excellent is sending out a replacement unit. 5 stars for FLO and 4.5 stars fro Baader due to problems with the first unit.
