Here's a repost.

As the moderator of this forum, I do not want to be in the position of recommending products that TeleVue does not support. Do as you wish. Installation of third party focuser upgrades will void you warranty.

As far as the FeatherTouch upgrade, I have never used or seen one. They do make attractive products, and they probably work as advertised. As for me, I will stick to the FocusMate if I ever feel compelled to upgrade the focuser on my TV-85. In my view, TeleVue scopes have an aesthetic quality. Installing the FeatherTouch would be analagous to swapping the hood ornament on your Cadillac for that of a Mercedes.

I am not affiliated with TeleVue, just a happy consumer of their products. Thanks.
