EAF for the SV105 T 3" focuser

Posted By David Aucoin

Try looking on ( They have 3D printed users who have created various mods for the telescope focusers that would be very useful for what you are looking for. I know, I have downloaded plenty of STL files from there and had a vendor called Treatstock ( to make these mods for me.

3D printed mods

Posted By David Aucoin

If anyone is looking for solutions to their modding problems, try Thingiverse ( They have a ton of 3D printed mods available for ATMers who wish to upgrade their telescopes, but don't want to spend a ton of cash on vendor supplied options. You can then take those STL files and go to Treatstock ( to have your mods printed for a fair price, if you don't have a printer of your own. I know, because I have made many upgrades for the telescopes using these 3D printed mods from some reputable vendors who own their own 3D printers. I am hawing over which 3D printer I want to purchase to save me some money in printing costs.

Just search for Astronomy in the search bar and you will get about 100 pages of mods!

I have been trying to post some new ads on Astromart for the last two hours. When I go to POST, the screen just hangs, not proceeding to the next page. What is going on?
