Primaluce Lab 60mm Compact Guide Scope with PLUS 80mm Guide Rings with 1.25" Non-Rotating Helical Focuser
The Primaluce Lab 60mm CompactGuide scope is simultaneously both a finder and a guide scope as well! It offers, at a great price, with a 60mm aperture achromatic lens and 240mm focal length (f/4), PLUS 80mm support rings (each with 3 screws with nylon tip) and a non-rotating helical micro focuser with connection for 31.8mm (1.25") accessories and fast focus adjustment 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 into 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 (1.25") 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 while the fast focus device (constituted by a sliding tube with lock screw) has a 23mm travel.
This guide scope has a diameter of 60mm and a focal length of 240mm (f/4) and it allows, with many cameras, to easily find guide stars. All in a lightweight and compact body that, thanks to PLUS guide rings, can be directly connected to any PLYS system or EAGLE unit using 2 screws for every ring, thus preventing flexures.
