TS Optics Guiding scope 80/400 mm with adjustable tube rings and metal focuser
This guide scope is a true high-end solution for all astrophotographers. The proven Skywatcher Startravel refractor with 80 mm aperture and 400 mm focal length is the base. The telescope convinces with a tack-sharp image and finely defined stars, thus guaranteeing guiding with maximum accuracy. Adjustable high-quality tube rings offer good support and allow neat guiding even over longer periods.The advantages
Connecting autoguider cameras and crosshair eyepieces
- With its fast optics, the guiding scope is ideally suited for high-resolution autoguiders.
- Compact dimensions and less than 2 kg weight allow attaching the telescope even to smaller mounts.
- The focuser is made of metal, has a locking screw and allows 1.25" and T2 connection.
- Simple adaption to any dovetail bar. The rings have a flat support surface and are mounted with standard M6 screws.
For getting into focus with a crosshair eyepiece, you need a 1.25" star diagonal. The same applies to webcams with 1.25" connection.
For using a CCD camera with T2 connection or an autoguider like the ALCCD5 or M-Gen, you need 2x 40mm T2 extension. With this, you can focus the camera. The advantage: everything is screwed, not just pushed in - no wobbling, no tilting.Delivery contents
