The included 50mm aperture, 162mm focal length (f/3.2) Deluxe Mini 50mm Guide Scope features fully multi-coated achromatic optics and a smooth-adjusting machined helical focus mechanism to allow for faster, more precise focusing of potential guide stars. The machined and anodized helical focuser has a fixed-orientation design that will not rotate the installed StarShoot AutoGuider Pro during focus adjustments, so you don't have to hassle with rotating fields of potential guide stars when focus adjustments are made. You'll find potential guide stars easily thanks to the Deluxe Mini 50mm Guide Scope's bright and wide field-of-view. The helical focuser has a 12.5mm travel range, and a tight thread tolerance which ensures zero backlash and eliminates flexure-inducing "play" for solid, stable performance night after night. The easy-grip, machined helical focuser ring features a convenient thumbscrew lock to keep the focuser securely in-place once ideal focus is achieved.

A machined aluminum 1.25" adapter on the included Deluxe Mini 50mm Guide Scope features three thumbscrews to keep the StarShoot AutoGuider Pro Mono securely in-place during long imaging sessions. 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 Mini 50mm Guide Scope. An included dovetail mounting base and attachment hardware lets you install the on any telescope optical tube, in case you want to install it on a telescope that already has a finder scope, or on a telescope without a dovetail base. The included aluminum adapter plate lets you mount the Orion Mini Deluxe Pro AutoGuider Package's dovetail base to most standard dovetail telescope attachment plates for piggybacking on top of your imaging telescope's tube rings, or for use in a side-by-side plate or saddle.
