Even though it's not very difficult for a person to 'do it
themself' it's a scary thing to recommend, particularly if they don't
feel comfortable about it. I wouldn't want to see anyone take a
chance of hurting their scope.

scopes are fine without the modification. The modificaton only raises
the level of perfection, but you can certainly get by without it.
I would suspect that there could be some possible image shifting
when loosening the collar on the Feathertouch 3.5 inch focuser too.
The modification simply puts the CNC focuser a step ahead of most
anything else in this area. Just makes a great focuser even greater.
Also, I would be more than happy to help anyone with it if the
location would make it reasonable. Maybe Tim would too.
