Product description

The compact and lightweight guide scope allows accurate guiding of telescopes up to 10" aperture. With only 640 grams, it will not place an excessive burden on the mount. The multi-coated, 2 element lens offers good images of stars.

Focusing is done with the 1.25" helical focuser. The correct focus position is then fixed with a locking screw.

Nice guidescope

Review by M. D. on 24.08.2018 23:09:27

( 4 / 5 )

Good quality scope. The tube rings are flattened on the bottom so it'll be less likely to flex when mounted on a flat surface. Comes with a good quality vixen-style dovetail bar. The lens has a DSLR lens style looking cover with some clamps to place and remove it. The helical focuser barely has any slop to it and can also be locked into position with three polyester screws.

My only issue is with the lower quality 2-screw 1,25" lock. I'd prefer a brass ring compression lock not damaging the nosepiece of my CCD.
