Product Description

The Orion Mini Deluxe Pro AutoGuider Package will provide the astrophotography with better accuracy to improve sharpness in exposures and astrophotos. It can be used with imaging telescopes with a maximum 1500mm focal length and has an simple installation process for tracking. Orion has designed it as both an autoguider and a guide scope and kept it at a low price range when compared to most others on the market due to the technological advances of the Orion StarShoot Autoguider Pro Monochrome Astrophotography Camera. With a highly sensitive autoguider like the Orion StarShoot AutoGuider Pro, any astrophotographer can enjoy auto-guided tracking precision by using a small-aperture guide scope with a much shorter focal length than the unwieldy instruments of the past. Along these lines, Orion is proud to announce this accurate and affordable autoguiding innovation - the Mini Deluxe Pro AutoGuider Package! This complete autoguiding solution includes our Deluxe Mini 50mm Guide Scope equipped with a precise helical focuser, our StarShoot AutoGuider Pro Monochrome Astrophotography Camera, a dovetail mounting base, and a small adapter plate. The whole package attaches to your imaging telescope just like a finder scope for easy, hassle-free installation.

 

  • A complete autoguiding solution designed for use with imaging telescopes up to 1500mm in focal length
  • Comes with the highly sensitive StarShoot AutoGuider Pro with 74% quantum efficiency

  • Included Deluxe Mini 50mm Guide Scope with Helical Focuser allows you to focus guide stars precisely for optimal results, without rotating the installed StarShoot AutoGuider Pro

  • Adjustable-aim dovetail guide scope bracket installs on virtually any astrophotography telescope quickly and easily

  • Small and compact autoguiding solution adds hardly any weight to an astrophotography setup


The included StarShoot AutoGuider Pro Monochrome Astrophotography Camera is a slim, lightweight, and extremely sensitive monochrome guide camera with high 75% quantum efficiency to help "guide" you to better quality astrophotos, and it features a built-in ST-4 port for easy connection to motorized equatorial mounts. The camera's slim, lightweight design allows for improved back-focus range and better compatibility with guiding and imaging accessories such as off-axis guiders. This highly sensitive monochrome imaging device is primarily designed for precise autoguiding, but it also performs as a high-quality astrophotography camera. The included Orion AstroCap software is packed with capture features such as focus aids, histogram, exposure and gain settings, auto dark frame removal, and more. Compatible with Windows XP, Vista, 7, and 8 (32 bit & 64 bit). Includes ASCOM driver. 

The included 50mm aperture, 162mm focal length (f/3.2) Deluxe Mini 50mm Guide Scope features fully multi-coated achromatic optics and a smooth-adjusting machined helical focus mechanism to allow for faster, more precise focusing of potential guide stars. The machined and anodized helical focuser has a fixed-orientation design that will not rotate the installed StarShoot AutoGuider Pro during focus adjustments, so you don't have to hassle with rotating fields of potential guide stars when focus adjustments are made. You'll find potential guide stars easily thanks to the Deluxe Mini 50mm Guide Scope's bright and wide field-of-view. The helical focuser has a 12.5mm travel range, and a tight thread tolerance which ensures zero backlash and eliminates flexure-inducing "play" for solid, stable performance night after night. The easy-grip, machined helical focuser ring features a convenient thumbscrew lock to keep the focuser securely in-place once ideal focus is achieved.

A machined aluminum 1.25" adapter on the included Deluxe Mini 50mm Guide Scope features three thumbscrews to keep the StarShoot AutoGuider Pro Mono securely in-place during long imaging sessions. The dovetail guide scope bracket fits in any standard Orion dovetail finder scope base and omits the need for a piggyback oriented guide scope system which can be a hassle to install and balance. Three adjustment thumbscrews on the bracket allow easy and precise aiming of the Mini 50mm Guide Scope. An included dovetail mounting base and attachment hardware lets you install the on any telescope optical tube, in case you want to install it on a telescope that already has a finder scope, or on a telescope without a dovetail base. The included aluminum adapter plate lets you mount the Orion Mini Deluxe Pro AutoGuider Package's dovetail base to most standard dovetail telescope attachment plates for piggybacking on top of your imaging telescope's tube rings, or for use in a side-by-side plate or saddle.

With a total weight of just 1.325 lbs. (21.2 oz.), the Orion Mini Deluxe Pro AutoGuider Package will add autoguiding accuracy to your astrophotos without adding the bulk of older and larger guide scopes. Get this affordable package today and add auto-guided accuracy to your astrophotos!
