QHYCCD Mini Guidescope Kit

Product Code: QHY-MiniGuideScope

Our Price: £119.00
QHYCCD's Mini Guide Scope is an ultra lightweight guide scope for use with most guide cameras with C/CS lens mounts.

The current range of guide cameras have high QE and even with their small pixel size you do not need a large long focal length guidescope for guiding as guide errors can be picked up with short focal length (guide)scopes. Also with short focal length guidescopes you get a wide field of view meaning guide stars can be found more easily than with longer focal length scopes.

The QHY Mini Guide Scope kit is based on this idea. The kit contains a 130mm focal length, 32mm diameter ultra small telescope operating at F4.3. You just rotate the focuser to focus, then lock for future use. The kit base fits standard finder shoes and can also be bolted to a tripod head. The OTA is securely held without marring.

The guidescope kit has been successfully tested with QHY5L-II Mono & Colour (ZWO and Altair Astro clones will also work) and QHY5P-II Mono & QHY5-II Mono.

 Please note: The QHY camera pictured is an option, and not included.
