JMI EV-2n Event Horizon Newtonian Focuser - DISCONTINUED -

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 variable-speed Motor and 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-2...

The Event Horizon EV-2 is a 2" black-anodized aluminum focuser with rubber grip knobs. The focuser lifts up to 8 pounds. Manual control is over 1???? times finer than most rack-and-pinion focusers.

The Newtonian version mounts on a range of surfaces from a 7.25" diameter, or larger, tube to a flat surface. The focuser gives 1/2" of travel and is designed for fine focus after rough adjustment with the normal telescope focusing knob.

JMI Focuser

Great product but, number one get the model 1N instead of the 2N, number two if you are replacing a 1 1/4" focuser as an upgrade look at the whole picture. I have run into secondary mirror issues with my scope, due to the larger diamenter 2" focuser. This may be a bit deeper than I should have got into. Still can't use the focuser because of alignment issues. Have opened a big ol' box of worms. The product is great, the fallout issues are shortcomings of the buyer looking at the downstream effect with no go direction from a pro on Dobsonian telescopes.
