Due to technology advancements of today, most autoguider devices are able to reach high level of guiding accuracy. Which means that guide scopes can be made with shorter focal lengths and smaller apertures compared to the large and chunky in the past.

The Orion Mini 50mm guide scope brings the guide scope to a position that was previously occupied by a telescope finder scope. This is so because this mini scope offers to sace astro-imagers time, space and money, at the same time providing comprehensive accuracy that only autoguiding can bring to long-exposure astrophotographs.

The optical quality on this guide scope is not to be missed, being fully multi-coated it is able to deliver clear and crisp images. Equipped with parfocal ring which makes it easy to repeat autoguiding performance night to night, by letting you set the ideal focus position of the autoguider.
