The Meade Series 6000 50 mm Guide Scope is the perfect compact guide scope solution to accomplish guiding with your astrophotography. It conveniently fits in the finderscope attachment base for Meade APO Refractors and includes a new base for use with Meade's SCT & ACF telescopes. Whatever happened to piggybacking a larger 80 mm refractor on the telescope to autoguide? Times have changed. Autoguider cameras and control software now guide at such a high accuracy that a smaller guide scope with a shorter focal length can be used. This saves weight for your equipment and provides a much larger field of view. This fact ensures you will find a guide star no matter where in the sky you are working.
The 50 mm Guide Scope employs a premium multi-coated doublet objective, edge-blackened for maximum contrast. A solid guide scope which does not flex is most important when autoguiding. That’s why Meade has outfitted the 50 mm Guide Scope with 6 oversized adjustment screws in a solid dual-ring aluminum mounting bracket. Yes, a mounting bracket is included. Focusing is easy and accurate, thanks to the Meade-designed Helical type Fine Focuser mechanism, which keeps your autoguider locked in the same orientation during focusing, or if you have decided to use an eyepiece for viewing.
The Meade Series 6000 - 50 mm Guide Scope accepts 1.25” cameras, 1.25" eyepieces, and T-threads. An extension tube is also included in this package to accommodate a larger range of autoguider cameras. It’s an ideal combination to use with Meade's LPI-G and LPI-G Advanced cameras!
NOTE: This product includes these excellent accessories: A 6-point Ring Bracket to hold the scope, a 17 mm T-thread Extension Tube with a 1.25" Holder (for Eyepiece or Guider) with Thumbscrews, and a Dovetail Finder Base.
NOTE: An eyepiece is NOT included with this Guide Scope.
