JMI Event Horizon Robotic Telescope Focuser - Cassegrain
Building on the excellent base of our Even Horizon focuser, we spent several years perfecting it's transformation into a completely robotic version for astro-imaging. This version of our focuser features an integrated high precision motor and control system that gives 8.1x10-6 inch (.2 micron) focus step position precision. We deliver 10 times finer control than comparable focusers.
In addition to fine motor control with position feedback it is ASCOM compatible and can be controlled with many of the popular astro-imaging software packages that you may already own. The system comes with easy to install drivers for instant connectivity.
Compatible with 6″ to 16″ Cassegrain telescopes (e.g. SCT and Mak-Cas) with standard output threads.The focuser gives 1/2″ of travel and is designed for fine focus after rough adjustment with the normal telescope focusing knob. Weight is 1.4 pounds without the controller.
Comes with a USB stick with the ASCOM driver and instructions.
Comes with no optical adapters so that you can select the optional adapter(s) you need, if any.
