    Default 60mm guidescope like orion with Helical Focuser



    Orion probably rebrands this one. Brand new never used. Rethinking my setup and just looking for a smaller guidescope like a QHY or Orion ultra mini. Comes with whats shown (ring, dovetail, metal front cap, scope itself). Ring screws are plastic, not metal. Has a threading in back that i could attach my zwo cam to also. Dovetail may have a small mark from me test mounting it but this has never seen the outdoors.

    asking $75 shipped paypaled.

    This should work well depending on the focal length of your imaging scope. The short FL (f/4 = 240mm) of this 60mm objective may not produce acceptable results on imaging scope's whose FL is greater than about 2000mm.

    Cheers,
