OFF-AXIS GUIDER OFF-AXIS GUIDER
Designed for use with DSLR and CCD cameras, this low profile Off-Axis guider is a convenient alternative to using a separate conventional guide scope for astrophotography, offering several advantages.
More precise tracking as mechanical flexure and image shift are eliminated from the system. The main camera and guiding camera will always move accurately together.
The overall system is much lighter and more compact as a separate guide scope is not needed.
Brighter, higher resolution images of the guide star on the guiding camera, as you are viewing through the main telescope. Easier to notice and correct tracking errors.
Supplied with 2” to M48, and M42 to 2” adaptors.

FLIP MIRROR IMAGING DIAGONAL FLIP MIRROR IMAGING DIAGONAL
Designed for convenient CCD imaging. The device has a 1.25" nosepiece, threaded for standard filters on one end, which is inserted into a telescope's focuser, and an M42x0.75 T-mount thread on the other end to connect a suitable CCD camera. A 1.25" helical focusing eyepiece tube is provided for visual observations.

In visual mode, the internal lever-operated mirror is angled at 45 degrees to channel the light path to the eyepiece in order to easily focus and frame the image.

In imaging mode, the mirror is taken out of the light path to direct the light path to the camera.

An adaptor to accept cameras with 1.25" nosepieces is available separately (prod.code 20287)

Please note: Your focuser will require 80mm of additional inward focusing distance from the normal focusing position to compensate for the length of the unit.

Vixen 75505 Polarie Star Tracker Vixen 75505 Polarie Star Tracker
The Vixen Polarie is a specialist photographic accessory that allows you to take pin-sharp photos of stars and constellations. It is designed to follow the apparent motion of the stars caused by the earth’s rotation, eliminating star trails.

Using the Polarie to take wide field images of constellations, shooting stars as well the Milky Way is surprisingly straightforward.

Polarie also enables you to photograph “starscapes” by adding a darkened landscape or silhouetted figure in the foreground of your frame.
