Product Description

Orion 30mm Ultra-Mini Guide Scope

Take away some weight from your astro-imaging setup and still appreciate the advantages of autoguiding accuracy with the new pint-sized Orion 30mm Ultra-Mini Guide Scope!

Since smaller and more sensitive autoguiding cameras are now available, a really large guide scope is usually not necessary for many astro-imagers. Why not take advantage these smaller autoguiding cameras and reduce the setup weight? It's easy with the extremely compact Orion 30mm Ultra-Mini Guide Scope.

The Orion guidescope is a perfect match for short focal-length, opticall fast imaging telescope. The 30mm Ultra-Mini Guide Scope's multi-covered, f/4.3 optics gives a wide field of view so you'll always have lots of options for guide star selection.

Outlined particularly for use with the Orion StarShoot AutoGuider Pro Mono Astrophotography Camera, Orion StarShoot All-In-One Astrophotography Camera, and similar eyepiece-sized autoguider cameras, the Orion 30mm Ultra-Mini Guide Scope highlights C/CS-mount threads for secure, flexure-free camera connection. The front housing of the Ultra-Mini Guide scope also serves as an precise helical focuser with etched hash-mark scale for simple and repeatable focusing. After an initial helical focus adjustment to match your autoguider device, a convenient thumbscrew permits the focus position to be bolted so you'll never need to complain with focus in the field. On the off chance that you wish to change autoguider devices, loosen the thumbscrew lock and adjust focus of the Ultra-Mini Guide Scope to match the device.

A strong two-ring bracket with a dovetail foot is included which is designed to fit the dovetail base found on Orion telescopes and numerous different brands. A threaded 1/4"- 20 socket on the underside of the dovetail foot permits direct connection to a universal plate. At just 4.7" long, the Orion 30mm Ultra-Mini Guide Scope won't take up a lot of space when you're packing up imaging gear for astrophotographic adventures. For convenient storage and transport, a die-cut foam lined tin case is included.

A featherweight contender with a big performance punch, the Ultra-Mini Guide Scope weighs just 7.6 oz. Start enjoying the benefits of a lighter-weight imaging setup today!

Guide scope and bracket only. Autoguider cameras sold separately.
