The range of magnification will be only a few, also the fine pitch leads to a lot of revolution that a change will be seen remarkable. The Vari Lock
is rather made to set it up one time for a certain length.
If it is only some millimeters, you may try to move the main mirror with the setting screws which are made for collimation. Unfortunately, there isn't much more to bring the MPCC closer to the mirror (if you don't want to replace the complete focuser).
If you need to get farther away from the telescope, you can add the Finetuning Rings #2958228 or #2958214 to the front of the MPCC.
