What is the Event Horizon Focuser?

The Event Horizon Focuser (EV) is a low-profile, friction-drive focuser designed for both the amateur and professional market. The highly acclaimed Crayford design (see below) permits tolerances up to 100 times better than conventional rack-and-pinion focusers. Zero image shift and zero backlash makes it fantastic for visual and photographic work and a must for CCD imaging. The modular design makes changes and upgrades extremely easy to accomplish. Add the optional Smart Focus, Digital Read Out (DRO) or Digital Focus Counter (DFC), for the ultimate focusing system. The EV is truly a masterpiece of engineering and workmanship that you will be proud to own for years to come

What is the Crayford Design?

The Crayford Eyepiece Mount (CEM) was invented by John ("Jack") Wall. The Crayford name comes from the Crayford Manor House Astronomical Society (UK) to which he belongs. The Crayford design uses high pressure on a metal drive shaft pressing against a metal drawtube which is held by bearings on the opposing side. This direct surface-to-surface drive mechanism eliminates backlash and shifting of the drawtube as seen in other designs such as the rack-and-pinion focuser and allows for very fine adjustments.

JMI recognized the benefits of this design and was the first company to bring it to the amateur market in a commercial product.

Event Horizon EV-3...

The Event Horizon EV-3 is a 2" black-anodized aluminum focuser with knurled knobs. The focuser lifts up to 4 pounds. Manual control is over 1½ times finer than most rack-and-pinion focusers. 

Our hand unit includes an electronic brake (not included in Meade systems), which stops the motor as soon as you quit pressing the keys, and linear voltage control for superior speed control. Also, older LX200 telescopes do not have enough power to properly run the motor on the low setting.

The JMI Event Horizon EV-3 Features...

  • Sealed Stainless Steel Ball Drawtube and Drive Shaft Bearings
  • Integral Motor
  • 1.25" Eyepiece Adapter and Hand Control Included
  • Interchangeable Base
  • Modular, Black Anodized Aluminum Body Style
  • Knurled Aluminum Knobs
  • Surface-To-Surface Drive To Elminate Backlash
  • Modular Design For Easy Changes And Upgrades

Customer Note: This focuser will NOT work with Vixen VC telescopes.
