Junior Astronomical Society (showing my age)

I left Astronomy a few years back to finish raising (single dad) my three disabled sons, and as Patrick Moore was a personal friend I also lost interest. But I am back now and just, after many many many weeks of research bought a new scope.

My problem now is finding a blooming wired remote focusser that I can use from indoors any ideas please, thank you

For info, I am Autistic, Aspergers, ADHD, therefore if I come over as a little "short" on occasions it is not intended, thank you

Hi and welcome :D

Nice instrument and setup you have there. Regarding a remote focuser attachment, maybe the JMI Motofocus sold by Rother Valley is the sort of thing you are looking for: ... ution.html

Not sure what the current supply situation is though.
