Orion StarShoot AutoGuider Pro & 60mm Guide Scope Package

Bring your astro-imaging setup to the next level with Orion's top-performing AutoGuider and Guide Scope Package! Precise tracking is simple and quick to setup with the sensitive Starshoot Autoguider Pro. Attached to the 60mm Guide Scope, the StarShoot Autoguider Pro will make it easier than ever to capture everything from the serene features of the Moon to faint deep-sky objects with pinpoint, sharp precision. Also included are two guide scope rings, dovetail bar, objective lens cap, 1.25" nosepiece, parafocal ring, and cables to connect your setup with ease.

No matter what type of telescope you're using for long-exposure astrophotography, precise guiding is an absolute requirement to obtain pinpoint star images. Using both a dedicated autoguider device and a guide scope is arguably the best way to optimize the accuracy of any astrophotography pursuit. Employing a complete autoguiding setup like the Orion StarShoot AutoGuider & 60mm Guide Scope Package is especially useful for capturing images of faint deep-sky objects, when multiple long exposures are required.

The included StarShoot AutoGuider Pro's very high sensitivity and exceptional 74% quantum efficiency and make it a perfect match for the versatile 60mm Multi-Use Guide Scope. Thanks to its higher sensitivity than other devices, the StarShoot AutoGuider Pro's sensor will display more potential guide stars to choose from. The 1/3" CMOS sensor resolution of 1280x960 (1.2MP) not only helps achieve very accurate autoguiding, it also gives the versatile StarShoot AutoGuider Pro the ability to perform as a solar system imaging camera on its own to capture sharp monochrome exposures of the Moon and planets with a fast frame rate of up to 200 frames per second.

The included 60mm Multi-Use Guide Scope with Helical Focuser has a large, 60mm aperture lens for excellent light-gathering. The larger aperture lets you see more stars in the guide scope field-of-view, for a brighter and wider selection of guide star choices. A built-in helical focuser allows precise focus adjustments with zero flexure for rigid performance. The focuser moves the attached AutoGuider Pro inwards or outwards while maintaining its orientation, so your field of potential guide stars will not rotate as focus is adjusted. Two heavy-duty guide scope rings with nylon-tipped thumbscrews are included for precise aiming, as is a 3.5" long (8.9 cm), 1.18" (3cm) wide Synta-style dovetail mounting bar for easy attachment.
