I want to use an autofocus with EKOS/Kstars with my skywatcher quattro.
Does somebody have any experience with that?

I use a Moonlite focusser on my Skywatcher Quatro 200mm F4 carbon.
There are mounting kits available fitting the exact positions of the cuts in the carbon tube.
My control unit is an Arduino with a Moonlite compatible driver that was programmed using the equally named Arduino tool.
Also I had to add a stepper bridge.

Does anybody know if the PrimaLuceLab Sesto Senso motor focuser compatible is with Ekos/Kstar? So i can control from Ekos/kstars.
It comes with ASCOM drivers.

It is compatible. I also heard from a couple of folks I know that it's quite brittle so exercise caution.

Thanks.
With quite brittle you mean the focusser itself?
