The Altair Mini Guidescope System for telescopes is based on the very popular Altair 60mm Finder. The package includes a 60mm finder optical tube assembly, a special precision locking focuser for Autoguiders and Webcams, finder rings, all metal universal bracket and stalk. Collimation screws are metal with nylon tips so the grip firmly minimising the risk of marling the tube.
The included quick-release finder base has 4x 4mm wide slotted holes allowing you to fit it to most telescopes on the market. The mini-dovetail wedge on the bracket will actually fit any GSO or Skywatcher telescope directly, but we suggest you use this included base because it has 2x clamping screws, for far better rigidity than standard finder bases on the market.
Engineered to provide accurate alignment
The adjustable tube rings are light, yet more than rigid enough to stay in perfect alignment for autoguiding up to 1.3m focal length. (order product code: MG60-CLAMP for longer focal length imaging around 2 metres focal length or more). The rings cannot twist or rotate like other cheaper makes because the dovetail bar they sit upon has a slight channel to accept their profile. The screws have special tips to avoid scratching the durable high quality and moisture resistant powder coat on the 60mm aluminium optical tube.
No compromise optics
The objective lens is fully anti-reflection coated and the tube and dewshield are internally blackened to increase contrast. This is a high quality F3.75 achromat objective, and it will deliver pinpoint stars on your finder chip on axis, performing at the resolution limit of a 60mm lens. It is far higher quality than the lenses found in cheaper, and smaller finders, and will perform extremely well at this fast focal ratio, keeping your exposure times short, and stars very bright with a small dot size - exactly what's needed for precision autoguiding.
