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.

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 auto guider
  • Fixed-orientation helical focuser for easy, smooth and accurate auto guider focus
  • 48mm clear aperture supports full frame cameras without vignetting

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

Orion Magnificent Mini AutoGuider Package

Model: 24781   |    Mpn: 24781   |    Ean: 0759270247812   |    PartNumber: 24781   |   Asin: B00QAAZLMQ

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.

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!

Orion 5521 Deluxe Off-Axis Guider for Astrophotography

Model: 5521   |    Mpn: 5521   |    Ean: 7044447838256   |    PartNumber: 5521   |   Asin: B001JTW1QW

Designed for deep-sky imaging with Schmidt-Cassegrain and refractor telescopes, the Orion Deluxe Off-Axis Guider lets you image and guide simultaneously through a single telescope. This also eliminates tracking problems such as differential flexure and mirror shift that commonly occur when using a separate guide scope. The imaging camera sees the same movement the autoguider sees, resulting in highly accurate tracking for pinpoint stars. Prism tilt adjustment with captive thumbscrew and more than 100 degrees of radial movement allow for easy guide star acquisition. Coarse and helical fine focus adjustments make focusing easy and accurate. The Orion Deluxe Off-Axis Guider can be used with most imaging cameras, including DSLRs, and telescopes with sufficient inward focus travel (requires 59mm). Three different lengths of threaded T-extensions are included (7mm, 17mm, 30mm) to accomodate different camera/guider combinations. Not recommended for use with Newtonian reflectors due to their limited focus travel. One-year warranty.

Features

  • Orion's Deluxe Off-Axis Guider lets you image and guide simultaneously through the same astrophotography telescope, eliminating the need for a separate guide scope
  • Eliminates tracking problems caused by using a separate guide scope such as differential flexure and mirror shift, and also helps reduce imaging setup time and overall weight
  • Compatible with astrophotography autoguiders that feature T-threads or a 1.25 nosepiece, as well as 1.25 illuminated reticle eyepieces
  • Attaches to any 2 telescope focuser via the included 2 nosepiece, or onto any T-thread equipped rear-cell. Includes T-extensions of three different lengths (7mm, 17mm, and 30mm) to accommodate different camera/guider combinations
  • Features prism tilt adjustment and more than 100 degrees of radial adjustment for easy guide star location. Requires a minimum of 59mm inward focus travel
