As a related question, Is the EAF compatible with the WO Star71 (1st Gen) or is some DIY work required to use it?

Sorry we do not have WO 71 and did not test it, but other customer has and it is supported.

Thanks Katherine.

Just to clarify, you are saying that ZWO hasn't tested the EAF with the Star71, but a customer has used the EAF with a Star71 and it worked. Do you know if worked right out of the box, or did they need to do anything special or make modifications to get it to work? If it needed some work, did they post their success story on the forum?

I'm just trying to figure out prior to purchase if I will need to plan on making mods to get the EAF to work with my Star71, or if it just works out of the box.

Thanks.

The screws in blue circle can be uninstalled, and find another screw to fix the adapter into the focuser via the screw hole in red circle.

Do you have a similar image for the zs73? I can only see one focus lock screw on the focuser so not sure where the second screw should be located?
