EAF Focuser on 3" Explore Scientific Focuser

Hello, I was wondering if anyone has had any luck mounting the EAF to a 3" focuser for Explore Scientific scopes. I have the ED140 f/6.5 model. Are there any plans to make a bracket set that will work with the EAF and the Explore scientific focusers? Any help would be appreciated. Regards, Skyhunter1

Re: Using 5V connection cable for power

>> Assuming i use your 5v cable, and my power supply is USB 3.1A (max) @ 5V, can i power the ASIAIR with just the 5V cable without any issues?
