About the JMI Digital Focus Counter for Meade SCTs...

The JMI Digital Focus Counter is a low-cost mechanical alternative to the electronic DRO. The three-digit counter display allows 10 turns of the shaft before returning to zero. If you want focusing repeatability with an NGF focuser, SCT (Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope) manual focus or MOTOFOCUS, this unit will do the job. It is available for all NGF focusers (both manual and motorized versions), as a manual unit which replaces the focus knob on 8" or larger SCTs (not recommended for CCD imaging due to space limitations and problems with image shift) and as a piggy-back option for most MOTOFOCUS units. (The piggy-back option is available only at the time of purchase of a new MOTOFOCUS unit and cannot be added later.)

 

This JMI Digital Focus Counter was designed to fit Meade 203SC, 2080, 2120, Gem mounted 2080 / 2120, Basic (2080 / 2120), LX2, LX3, LX5, LX6, LX10, LX50 7" Maksutov / 8" / 10", LX90, LX100 8" / 10", LX200 7" Maksutov / 8" / 10" / 12" / 16", LX200GPS 8" / 10" / 12" / 14" / (16" ?), LX200R 8" / 10" / 12" / 14" / (16" ?), LXD55 SC-8, LXD75 SC-8
