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
  • Includes adapters with the correct spacing for DSLR cameras, Nightscape CCD and other popular astroimaging cameras

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. 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!

Features

  • Complete, compact, and easy-to-operate autoguiding system designed for precise astrophotographic guiding with instruments up to 1500mm focal length
  • Mini 50mm guide scope with bright, wide-field optics puts numerous potential guide stars in view so you'll never have to search for one!
  • Package includes the popular and easy to use Orion StarShoot AutoGuider - capable of subpixel guiding accuracy!
  • Adjustable-aim dovetail guide scope bracket installs on virtually any astrophotography telescope quickly and easily
  • Very small and compact autoguiding system adds hardly any weight to an astrophotography setup and can conveniently be stashed in an accessory case between uses

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

The Orion StarShoot AutoGuider's sensor is a high-resolution, 1/2" format 1.3-megapixel CMOS monochrome chip, with 5.2 micro x 5.2 micro pixels for highly accurate guiding. That high accuracy due to the small pixel size means you can use the AutoGuider with smaller, less expensive guide scopes than is possible with other guide cameras. The chip resides in a super-compact, anodized aluminum housing that measures just 2.5" wide by 2.35" long and weighs a mere 4.4 oz. It has a 1.25" nosepiece that can be removed to access a T-thread interface. The AutoGuider's short inward focus requirement of only 15mm from a typical 1.25" Plossl eyepiece makes it compatible with virtually any telescope. The incredible ease of use will appeal to beginning and experienced astrophotographers alike. The included software requires no previous knowledge of autoguiding. It offers automatic calibration and guiding with literally a single mouse click.

Olivon Off-Axis Guider, Black

Model: OLOAG-US   |    Mpn: GUIDER   |    Ean: 7340076992049   |    PartNumber: GUIDER   |   Asin: B00CHGMIEQ

Olivon Off-Axis Guider. Ultra-low profile - only 15mm thick. The new Olivon Off-Axis Guider is one of the lowest profile off-axis guiders. Despite this, no compromise has been made between the function and operating comfort of this versatile off-axis guider. There is no mechanical flexure. The mount load is dramatically reduced. There is no need for a guide scope and the setup remains very compact. You work with the main telescope's resolution and focal length, not with the typically lower resolution of a guide scope.
