Off Axis Guider with 43mm. free opening.
- ideal for all telescopes with short back focus or for flattener / corrector combinations
- large aperture, 43mm.
- very versatile due to a wide variety of adaptation options on both sides
- off-axis port can be focused independently from the main camera
- the prism's position can be shifted - for a wider field to find guiding stars
Guiding using an off-axis-guider has many advantages. You do not need a guiding scope (= less load for the mount) and guiding accuracy increases because there's no bending between main and guiding scope. Addtional errors like mirror shifts are corrected, too.
