I have the newer 81S Vixen Apo which is a superb telescope but it does not come with a duel speed fine tune focuser as standard. Even though the stock focuser is nice to use, I am used to having duel control on all my other telescopes and I must admit I was missing this feature on the Vixen. I deliberated for quite a while whether this item was worth the rather high price and also if it was going to be difficult to fit.
Anyway I bit the bullet and put the order in. In the box are the focuser, screws, base plate, allen keys and clear instructions on how to fit it. You just need to add a phillips screw driver. The focuser itself is a high quality precision engineered component. Now you see where the money went! Fitting it took approx 20 minutes including a few minutes to adjust tension to my liking. Just to be clear though the original plastic knob looks like there is only one allen grub to come out but it is on top of another in the same housing, so there are two grubs to remove but from the same hole. I can see some might get confused about how the booklet refers to this.
Now this scope really feels complete, the upgrade feels so well engineered and has that weighted quality feel and accuracy to it. So this is an expensive upgrade but such a worthwhile one to do I totally recommend this, and due to the sheer quality and feel to it , the fact that all the allen keys are supplied and the instructions are pretty comprehensive and clear it warrants the 5 stars.
