    I don't know if it is plastic or not but appears so in the photos. If you can get a free ST80 focuser, go for it... you can give it back if you decide to keep the R80 focuser. Installing the focuser is simple.. remove three screws and take off the old focuser, insert the new focuser then the three screws.

    I actually heard back from the owner today that he had already upgraded the focuser to one from an Orion ST80.
