  • Compact Deluxe Mini Guide Scope with a built-in helical focuser for precise focusing of guide stars
  • Designed for use with the Orion StarShoot AutoGuider (sold separately), and astrophotography telescopes up to 1500mm focal length
  • Non-rotating camera collar will not cause the attached autoguider to rotate during focus adjustments, ensuring the field of potential guide stars will not move
  • Adjustable-aim dovetail guide scope bracket installs on virtually any astrophotography telescope quickly and easily
  • Very small and compact autoguiding system adds hardly any weight to an astrophotography setup and can conveniently be stashed in an accessory case between uses

Consisting of a 50mm aperture, 162mm focal length (f/3.2) achromatic refractor guide scope with helical focuser, an adjustable dovetail guide scope bracket, a dovetail mounting base, and an adapter plate, the Orion Deluxe Mini 50mm Guide Scope with Helical Focuser makes it easy for any astrophotographer to enjoy the precision of autoguiding in their celestial photos. All this conveniently compact setup requires is a StarShoot AutoGuider (sold separately) or similar small-chip CCD autoguider and it's ready for night, camera, action! The guide scope bracket fits into the standard Orion dovetail finder scope base found on most Orion telescopes. If your imaging scope doesn't feature a dovetail base or has one already occupied by an oft-used finder, the included dovetail base and attachment hardware lets you attach the Deluxe Mini 50mm Guide Scope with helical Focuser to any optical tube. Alternatively, the included adapter plate can be used to attach the dovetail base and Deluxe Mini 50mm Guide Scope to any standard dovetail plate, or side-by-side plate if preferred. The lightweight Deluxe Mini 50mm Guide Scope with Helical Focuser weighs a mere 1.2lbs. (19.2oz.).
