Huetech used to sell a nice helical focuser that didn't rotate the camera. You can lock down all of the adjustments with thumb screws so once locked down there is NO flexure or unwanted movement. I have had that setup (with a 50mm guide scope) since about 2005 and it works great with my 152mm and 80mm APO refractors. I have another 70mm guide scope with a longer focal length  and different focuser that I use with both the 152mm APO refractor and a 11" SCT. The trick is to eliminate ALL possible loose/soft connections....once you do you will get great guiding. 

I don't have the part number of that Huetech focuser anymore so can't help there.
