The Q-Focuser brackets for the Redcat and Askar scopes
work the same way as in the EAF videos below.
These dedicated brackets allow you to mount a QHY Q-Focuser onto
Disclaimer: This is a brand new product that has not been fully tested
and should be considered "beta" hardware, however the designs are based
on proven designs. If you have any issues I will replace the bracket after
making any needed modifications.
Brackets with a "+" beside them have been fully tested.
William Optics Redcat 51 and Redcat 71
The drive system is belt driven and results in zero additional backlash.
The side opposite the Q-Focuser has a standard Synta shoe/saddle for mounting additional accessories such as an ASIAir or Pegasus Powerbox etc.
Redcat 51 notes: The bracket can be mounted with or without the top handle and different length mounting screws are provided. The design also allows the bracket to remain on the scope even when the dew shield is reversed, covering the rubber grip for transport.

Q-Focuser-Redcat71 : QHY Q-Focuser bracket for the Redcat 71.
REDCAT 51 VERSION NOTE: There have been 3 versions of the Redcat 51. The original (V1) had two threaded mounting holes on the side of the scope ring. The later two versions (V1x and V2) have 4 threaded holes on the top of the scope ring. This bracket will work with V1x and V2. A bracket for the Redcat 51 V1 is available upon request by sending a message to email@example.com.
Since the focus ring on the Askar FMA230 helical focuser also moves with
rotation, an innovative design was necessary to mount a Q-Focuser on the
scope. This was accomplished by creating a longer Q-Focuser pulley
and incorporating a support pin on the other side of the pulley so the
pulley does not flex during use.
The bracket can be mounted on either side of the scope, and all necessary hardware is included.
