SCT Fine focussing on the cheap!

Here is a fine focusing tip for SCT's that I dreamed up. Get your focus so its close, attach one of these jar openers to the focuser so its dangling straight down, gently tap a fingertip on either end to fine focus. Works a treat without shaking the scope and you get a visual reference as to where your focuser is ;)

I used to use this as a makeshift follow focus for shooting HD video with my 5DMk2
