Orion's StarShoot AutoGuider and the technological developments over the years, Orion offers their Magnificent Mini AutoGuider Package at an affordable price, yet delivering astounding astrophotography results. This means accurate imaging results and optimized imaging precision by using a small-aperture guide scope with a shorter focal length with this affordable autoguiding innovation.

This design is meant for use with imaging instruments up to 1500mm in focal length. Featuring full multi-caoted achromatic optics is the 50mm aperture, 162mm focal length (f/3.2) mini guide scope. Thanks to the mini guide scope's bright and wide field-of-view you will never have to search for potential guide stars. Letting set the guide scope to ideal focus with a knurled locking collar is an adjustable-focus objective lens.

The dovetail guide scope bracket fits in any standard Orion dovetail finder scope base and omits the need for a piggyback oriented guide scope system which can be a hassle to install and balance. Three adjustment thumbscrews on the bracket allow easy and precise aiming of the guide scope.

It can also be used in a side-by-side plate or saddle.
