The Prima Luce Lab 60mm guide scope offers the advantage of a large 60mm aperture combined with a micrometric focuser and 2 guide rings.
The scope has a focal length of 240mm and a focal ratio of f/4. The PLUS 80mm support rings have 3 screws with a nylon tip for a perfect alignment with the main telescope. The 31.8mm micrometric non-rotating helical focuser allows to keep the orientation of the connected camera. On the contrary, in rotatable focusers the cables of the guide camera will twist while focusing.
Designed to be used with many guide cameras, it can be used as a great optical finder by adding a 31.8mm diameter eyepiece.
The precision helical focuser has a 10mm travel that can be increased with the eyepiece extension.
Two included plates let you install the guide scope above the EAGLE control unit. By adding these plates you will have a flat base for an optimal connection with 4 screws M5x12 (included).

I have been using this equipment as a finder and
- very much like the convenience of the brighter stars compared to a 50mm finder
- can using just a normal eyepiece easily find targets directly onto a CCD image of only 25� to 20�.
