  Received the JMI motor focuser from Rother Valley Optics this morning so got to work attaching it to the Lhires in place of the Skywatcher motor. Just a case of removing a cog and the attachment that goes on a focuser knob and adding a small cog wheel (donated once again from the printer I broke up) to the motor shaft, also had to make up a smaller diameter belt,luckily had just enough printer belt left to do this. Works a treat,not as bulky as the Skywatcher motor and is lighter,just need to add small cover over the cog so as to seal from light and stop dust getting in slot.
