LOVE - but awkward to fit to the SW200P
Wednesday, 29 December 2021  | 

This is going to change the way I image, 100%. But trying when trying to fit it to a SW200P is a little tricky. The spindle from focuser to the EAF isn't long enough, so make sure you take off both thumbwheels from the focuser, and extend the gear rod from the focuser as far as it can go without it falling out. It site best on the right hand side for me. Then it will fit like a glove. Can wait for the bloody clouds to clear!

very fast delivery and quality product

I messaged FLO about the EAF to see if it would fit on my skywatcher 72ED, Grant replied within a few hours assuring me it would fit perfect, so i ordered it, 2 days later i received the EAF and fitting was simple which took about 20 minutes, i tested it with my asiair plus and manually used the focus buttons and it worked perfect, i have not been able to try it out in the garden yet to see what auto focus is like ( British weather ) but im sure it will work great. Thanks again FLO for good advice and quick dispatch and delivery.

Love it!!!

First comment would be order time. When I purchased it said it would be a week. I don't know how FLO define a week but arriving 48 hours after I ordered it was a really pleasant surprise! As is usual with ZWO the instructions can be a little confusing but there are literally hundreds of how to guides out there on the internet so it did not take very long to get it fitted.

I have used with both NINA and Sharpcap and I have to say this is probably my favourite bit of kit I have bought to date. It is very well made and the removal of the power supply and powering though USB is a really good idea as it cuts down on cables needed.

I find it works flawlessly, my pictures now are so sharp, I really don't know why I didn't get one of these before.

Definitely would recommend getting one and would always recommend buying from here!

Electonic Focuser from ZWO
Thursday, 2 September 2021  | 

Purchased together with the temerature controller, the focuser has worked extremely smoothly and with accurate focusing. It integrates seamlessly with the AIPAIR pro and associated app, which I use on the Ipad. The focuser will automatically refocus using the Autorun integration and temperature movement parameters. It can also be programmed to focus after a meridian flip. An excellent piece of equipment. So why only a 4* rating? In a word, "Instructions". With ZWO you know the instructions will be lacking and the first thing to do is to head to the web for "How To " videos. Once I assembled the focuser with the scope fully retracted, it worked perfectly. if only ZWO would improve their documentation they would be truly 5*

A good addition

Just bought this and another few small items from First Light Optics. So far, very pleased with this ZWO autofocuser having used it on a couple of occasions to date. Makes life much easier and with the ASIair pro, it's a breeze.
Excellent support and advice from Chris at FLO.

ZWO Electronic Automatic Focuser (EAF) 5V on a William Optics GT81 Mk4
Tuesday, 13 July 2021  | 

Extremely easy to fit the EAF to this scope , the kit even contains the 2 allen keys you need to do the changeover. Took all of 10 minutes to get to the testing it running stage (tested with APT).
I had looked at the videos on uTube before I ordered it so I knew what to expect.
Runs very smooth and will give me full remote imaging capability (from a cosy seat beside the woodstove).
Have uploaded a photo sequence of fitting it to the GT81 along with some tips on Stargazers Lounge if anyone is thinking of doing the same.

Great product - ideally used with an ASIair Pro. Surprisingly easy to attach to the scope by searching on YouTube for a video to follow. Probably the only astro product that doesn’t seem expensive

Great bit of kit.

As title states, solid and well made but can't give a review as yet as have not had chance to use it as yet under seeing conditions. FLO were great and kept me informed on progress of order and once sent out took less than 24 hours to arrive.
