  • Features prism tilt adjustment and more than 100 degrees of radial adjustment for easy guide star location

Our expert comment:

To ensure that the guide camera/eyepiece and imaging camera are both in focus, it may be necessary to clamp one of them to the eyepiece barrel at a different position. A 'homo focal ring' (Product No. 10610) is useful here.

An extension tube is also sometimes required, e.g. from Lumicon.
