This guide scope has a focal length of 190mm and a focal ratio of f/3.8. The objective is a fully multi-coated achromatic doublet for a greater optical precision. The border of the lenses are blackened to deliver a higher contrast.
The 69mm support rings have 3 screws with a nylon tip for a perfect alignment with the main telescope. Having the guide scope aligned to the main telescope increases the guiding accuracy and it reduces the field rotation displayed in the capturing camera.
The mini dovetail bar can be firmly mounted on any standard finder scope bracket so you do not require any extra piggy back dovetail bar on top of your telescope.
The 31.8mm / 1.25" non-rotary helical focuser permits a micrometric focusing adjustment while a quick release draw tube offers an initial coarse focusing.
Designed to use with many guiding cameras it can be used as a great optical finder by adding a 31.8mm diameter eyepiece. This 50mm compact guide scope has an accurate helical focuser that keeps the orientation of the connected camera.
Note that with rotative focusers the cables of the guide camera could get twisted while focusing.
The precision helical focuser has a 10mm travel while the fast focus device has a 30mm excursion.
