The 60mm aperture lens offers better light gathering capabilities than 50mm and smaller aperture guide scopes. Enabling users to see more fainter stars in the guide scope's field of view, therefore a wider choice range for guide star selection. The potential guide stars seen through this guide scope will be clear and bright for effortless guide star selection.

Designed for use with small-chip autoguider devices such as the Orion StarShoot seriece autoguiders.

Built-in helical focuser that allows precise focus adjustments with zero flexure for rigid performance.

Fixed-orientation focuser mechanism will not rotate inserted autoguider cameras or eyepieces when focus adjustments are made, the helical focuser simply moves the attached device inwards or outwards while maintaining its orientation.

For the nights where you don't plan to capture astrophoto exposures. this multi use guid scope can be transformed into a finder scope, additional eyepieces can be added on for different magnifications or for aiming purposes
