PrimaLuceLab's 60mm CompactGuide scope is both a finder and a guide scope! It offers, at a great price, an achromatic lens 60mm diameter and 240mm focal length (f/4), PLUS 80mm support rings (each with 3 screws with nylon tip) and a non-rotary helical focuser with connection for 31.8mm accessories and extension to allow you to reach the focus point both with eyepieces (for use as a finder) and with guide cameras (for use as a small guide scope).
Designed for use with many guide cameras (which can be inserted in the 31.8mm focuser connection or screwed on the T2 thread of the focuser), it can be used as a great optical finder adding a 31.8mm diameter eyepiece! The 60mm CompactGuide scope has a precision helical focuser that keeps the orientation of the connected camera. In fact, by acting on the focus mechanism, the camera does not rotate and this feature is essential for proper use with autoguiding software. The precision helical focuser has a 10mm travel.
In the box of 60mm CompactGuide scope with PLUS 80mm guide rings you will find also 2 additional plates that you use when you install the guide scope above the EAGLE. By adding these plates you will have a flat base for optimal connection with the 4 screws M5x12 that come in the box.
