Celestron Wedge with NexStar Evolution/SE, Black (93665)

Model: 93665   |    Mpn: 93665   |    Ean: 0050234936651   |    PartNumber: 93665   |   Asin: B018T2D2BY

The new WEDGE for nexstar evolution and SE 6/8 mounts turns our venerable single fork arm telescopes into portable astroimaging powerhouses. Our popular nexstar SE and our new nexstar evolution telescopes are great for astrophotography, however an EQ WEDGE is necessary to take longer exposure images, or to advance further and use an auto guider. Alta-az tracking keeps objects centered, but a long enough exposure will reveal they rotate in the field of view. Adding a WEDGE allows the mount to track equatorially, thereby eliminating field rotation. This WEDGE was re engineered from the ground-up, specifically tailored to the nexstar evolution and se s size and styling. Weight is minimal to keep the whole setup light and portable, yet the platform is sturdy to support taking long exposure astrophotos. Unlock the full imaging potential from your nexstar evolution or SE 6/8 mount with this new WEDGE!

Features

  • Equatorial WEDGE for Celestron nexstar 6/8sec and evolution alt-az mounted computerized telescopes
  • Enables long exposure astrophotography and auto guiding by tilting the telescope azimuth into an Equatorial platform allowing it to track an arc around the Polar axis.
  • For beginners to intermediate planetary and deep space Imagers
  • Captive hardware, tool-less operation, easily adjusts under Load
  • All new hefty yet portable design

Celestron 93648 Deluxe Off-Axis Guider (Black)

Model: 93648   |    Mpn: 93648   |    Ean: 0050234936484   |    PartNumber: 93648   |   Asin: B00DSXW5OU

The Off-Axis Guider is an essential astroimaging accessory for long focal length telescopes that require the most accurate guiding possible. The Celestron Off-Axis Guider uses a prism to intercept a small portion of the telescope s focal plane (outside the field of view of the main imaging camera) to locate a guide star. Any movement seen by the guide star will be the exact same movement seen by the imaging camera. Guiding this way will correct for tracking errors, as well as opto-mechanical errors or flexure. The result: better astroimages with pinpoint round stars. Off-Axis Guiders have been around for a long time, but typically pose three main challenges: 1 Finding a guide star from the far edges of the telescope s focal plane can be difficult, considering the small field of view and sometimes less-than-ideal illumination. 2 Getting both imaging camera and autoguider to reach focus with one another is time consuming and sometimes requires experimentation. 3 Additional spacers and adapters are usually required for your particular camera, telescope, and autoguider, which adds to cost and complexity. Celestron's Off-Axis Guider addresses these challenges by: 1 Providing a large 12.5 mm prism that can be adjusted to move closer to the center of the telescope s focal plane, depending on the size of the imaging camera. This results in brighter guide stars, with the help of the large prism to fully illuminate the autoguider sensor. 2 Featuring a high-quality, fixed-orientation Helical focuser. This provides extremely smooth and accurate focus of the autoguider without changing (or twisting) the autoguider camera orientation. 3 Including all the needed spacers and adapters are included for most common imaging configurations, including DSLR cameras, Nightscape CCD cameras, and more. The following adapters are included: SCT/EdgeHD, female M48, female M42 (T-thread), male M48, male M42 (T-thread), 3 T-thread spacers Additional Specifications Helical Focuser Travel: 8mm Telescope Connection: M42 T-thread, M48, and SCT/EdgeHD Autoguider Connection: M42 T-thread, and standard 1.25" adapter Camera Connection: M42 T-thread, and M48

Features

  • Most accurate way to guide - improved accuracy compared to using a separate guide scope
  • 12.5mm multi-coated prism with aluminized backing for maximum reflectivity and illumination to the autoguider
  • Fixed-orientation helical focuser for easy, smooth and accurate autoguider focus
  • 48mm clear aperture supports full frame cameras without vignetting

Employing the use of both a dedicated autoguider and guide scope is arguably the best way to optimize the accuracy of any astrophotography pursuit. In the recent past however, this enhanced imaging precision came with a very hefty price tag. Just a few short years ago, a dedicated autoguider could easily cost more than many astrograph-quality telescopes. To make matters worse, most guide scopes of the recent past were prohibitively long, bulky, and difficult to align with repeatable accuracy. Today, thanks to technological progress and the availability of the highly sensitive yet affordable Orion StarShoot AutoGuider, astrophotographers can enjoy accurate imaging results without emptying their pockets. With a sensitive autoguider like the Orion StarShoot AutoGuider, any astrophotographer can enjoy optimized imaging precision by using a small-aperture guide scope with a much shorter focal length than the unwieldy instruments of the past. Along these lines, Orion is proud to announce our latest affordable autoguiding innovation - the Magnificent Mini AutoGuider!

Meade Instruments 07002 8-Inch Equatorial Wedge for 8-Inch LX200-Series Telescope

Model: 7002   |    Mpn: 7002   |    Ean: 0709942000108   |    PartNumber: 7002   |   Asin: B0001DZ8U8

Meade 8" Equatorial Wedge #07002. Allows for polar alignment of Meade 8" model ACF and SC models, as required for long exposure astrophotography and imaging. For use with Meade Field Tripods as supplied with compatible models. Compatible with Meade LX90 models with addition of LX90 Wedge Adapter, item 07389. Equatorial alignment is required for astrophotography and imaging exposures longer than about 5 minutes. The Meade 8" Wedge is mounted between a telescope and the tripod to accomplish the tilt of an equatorial type mount that matches the observer's latitude and permits precise polar alignment of your telescope. The wedge allows the astrophotography to align the telescope's axis of rotation with the Earth's axis of rotation. This alignment eliminates stars in your long exposure photograph from appearing as a long arc, trail or streak due to an effect known as field rotation. For images under approximately 5 minutes a wedge is not necessary and the telescope can be set up in altitude-azimuth (alt-az) configuration as normally used for visual observation. Features heavy duty cast aluminum construction with latitude and longitude fine adjustments and a compass to use the magnetic pole as a starting reference. For use with the Meade field tripods as supplied with all compatible models. Recommended for 8 telescopes. Compatible with Meade SC and ACF models including 2080, LX50 and LX200. Adapter required for use with all LX90 models, available separately as item 07389.

Orion 05531 Thin Off-Axis Guider for Astrophotography (Black)

Model: 5531   |    Mpn: 5531   |    Ean: 7337331795736   |    PartNumber: 5531   |   Asin: B00E4F36AS

Add auto guiding accuracy to any astrophotography setup with the affordable Orion Thin Off-Axis Guider. This versatile accessory lets you image and guide through a single telescope without the need for a separate guide scope! Its thin, 10.5mm profile makes the Orion Thin Off-Axis Guider a unique and versatile offering to today's astrophotographers. It's ideal for use with Newtonian reflector telescopes which have limited back focus travel. Until now, astrophotographers who used Newtonian reflector telescopes had to use a separate guide scope to add auto guiding accuracy to their images. With the convenient Thin Off-Axis Guider, you can guide and capture astrophotos using one telescope - no guide scope required! Using the Thin Off-Axis Guider for Astrophotography will help you save time and reduce the weight and bulk of your imaging system while eliminating pesky tracking errors. Designed for use with the Orion Star Shoot Auto Guider (sold separately) and similar small-chip auto guiding devices, the Orion Thin Off-Axis Guider features lateral adjustment capability which can effectively double the prism's width for increased versatility. This handy astrophotography accessory comes with a host of useful adapters including a C-mount to T-threads adapter, Canon DSLR bayonet adapter, Camera T-adapter, ultra-thin M48 male to T-adapter female adapter, 3mm Coma-Corrector spacer, 18mm spacer, and a 2 inch nosepiece. Thanks to these included adapters, the Orion Thin Off-Axis Guider for Astrophotography will work with many imaging systems right out of the box. Whether you use a Newtonian astrograph, Schmidt-Cassegrain, or other telescope for your astrophotographic pursuits, get the Orion Thin Off-Axis Guider for Astrophotography and start enjoying increased accuracy in your photos of the cosmos!

Features

  • Delightfully thin off-axis guider ideal for use with Newtonian reflector telescopes and DSLR cameras

Orion 7398 2.1 Pound Counterweight for EQ-1 and Min-EQ Mounts

Model: 7398   |    Mpn: 7398   |    Ean: 0759270073985   |    PartNumber: 7398   |   Asin: B00ATY4A3K

The 2.1lb counterweight for the Orion EQ-1 and Min-EQ equatorial mounts lets you take full advantage of the equatorial mount's tracking abilities, even when you have a small amount of equipment attached. Ideal for use with smaller equipment payloads such as a DSLR camera or small telescope, the narrow 2.1lb counterweight will not make contact with the EQ-1M motor drive housing during extensive motorized tracking of celestial objects. If you are, for example, performing wide-field astrophotography using a DSLR camera and a wide camera lens, this narrow counterweight provides enough weight to balance the DLSR properly on the equatorial mount, and it won't interfere with the EQ-1M motor drive housing while tracking. Many standard 5lb and heavier counterweights are too heavy to achieve proper balance with lighter equipment payloads on an equatorial mount. In most cases you must position the heavy counterweight all the way up the counterweight shaft to optimize balance. In this position, the standard wide counterweight can make contact with the EQ-1M motor drive, making it impossible to track an object for extended periods of time. This narrow 2.1lb counterweight is perfect for achieving proper balance with lighter equipment, and its narrow 46mm (1.8") diameter will not make contact with the EQ-1M motor drive, no matter what the orientation is of the Right Ascension axis. Now you can track celestial objects all night long without having to worry!

Features

  • Small 2.1lb counterweight for proper balancing of lighter loads on the EQ-1 or Min-EQ equatorial mounts
  • Narrow weight diameter eliminates contact with EQ-1M motor drive, allowing full rotation of the Right Ascension axis
  • Ideal for balancing relatively lightweight DSLR camera and lens combinations on the EQ1 and/or Min-EQ equatorial mounts
  • Counterweight measures 46mm (1.8) in diameter and 85mm (3.35) in length
