Product Description

Orion Starshoot AutoGuider Pro and 60mm Guide Scope Package

This package includes both the StarShoot AutoGuider Pro Mono and Orion 60mm Multi-Use Guide Scope with Helical Focuser, excellent for getting accurate guiding before an astro-imaging session.

Excellent and accurate guiding is a crucial factor to get pinpoint images, regardess of wheat telescope is being used for long-exposures. A complete kit like the Orion StarShoot Autoguider and 60mm Guide Scope Package serves as a great way for obtaining images of faint deep sky objects, especially for objects with long exposure demand.

The Orion StarShoot Autoguider Pro is a very high sensitive sensor with a remarkable quantum efficiency of 74% and it serves as a great companion to the 60mm Multi-Use Guide Scope. Due to its high sensitivity, more guide stars are available to choose from. The 1/3" CMOS sensor resolution of 1280x960 (1.2MP) helps achieve very accurate autoguiding, but in addition also gives the StarShoot Autoguider Pro the ability to function as a solar imaging camera to capture sharp monochrome exposures of the moon and planets of up to 200 fps.

The Orion 60mm Multi-Guide Scope with Helical Focuser has a large  60mm aperture lens for superior light gathering, therefore making more stars visible in the field of view to expand the amount of guide stars. The built-in helical focuser allows excellent focus adjustments with zero flexure. While maintaining the orientation of the AutoGuider Pro, it can also move it inwards or outwards to avoid field star orientation being changed. Two heavy-duty guide scope rings with nylon-tipped thumbscrews are included for precise aiming, as is a 3.5" long (8.9 cm), 1.18" (3cm) wide Vixen-style dovetail mounting bar for easy attachment.

The Orion 60mm Guide Scope with Helical Focuser can also function as a straight-through finder scope when used with an optional 1.25" eyepiece. With an optional eyepiece inserted, the Guide Scope allows easy visual alignment of the Guide Scope with the main imaging telescope prior to attaching and using the StarShoot AutoGuider Pro. A non-marring compression ring keeps inserted eyepieces in-place without scratching the eyepiece barrel.

The assembled Orion StarShoot AutoGuider Pro & 60mm Guide Scope Package weighs just 2 lbs., 2.1 oz., so it won't add excessive weight to your astrophotography setup.
