Event Horizon (EV) Focuser Bases for
Explorer Scientific Crayford Focuser Replacement
If you are planning on replacing an Explorer
Scientific Crayford Focuser with one of our Event Horizon (EV) Focusers, you
will need to determine the version of the Explorer Scientific focuser in order
to choose the correct EV Base for mounting our focuser.
The first step is to determine the Version of the Explorer Scientific (ES)
focuser as documented here. The picture below shows two ES focusers.
Compare the base of the focusers. The one on the left has no lip.
The one on the right has a lip (indentation) at the bottom of the base.

the base (shown below) that will fit the version you have.
