Similar to a finder scope, this guide scope features a non-rotating helical focuser making it easier to focus the camera. These guide scopes have been very popular for guiding a refractor. The 50 mm guide scope fits on our dual ring systems.
The guide scope may be used as a straight through finderscope with the addition of a 1.25” reticle eyepiece. It will not work with a diagonal however as it will not reach focus.
The Stellarvue guide scope weighs 18 ounces and works with all of our standard 50 mm ring systems. This guidescope uses the same 210 mm focal length, broadband fully multi-coated objective lens as in our top rated F50 finderscope. Other fittings are black anodized. Main tube is interior painted in ultra flat black. Focuser is lubricated for improved stability and smoothness.
Tube is 54.5 mm in diameter, dew shield is about 58 mm in diameter. The length is 9 1/4” - 9 3/4”.
