Newtonian / Refractor Easy Guider 1.25"
The low-profile Lumicon Newtonian/Refractor Easy-Guider is one of the most powerful astrophotography accessories available today. The Lumicon Newtonian Easy-Guider incorporates a unique, patented, radial adjustment for finding bright, off-axis guide-stars. The Newtonian Easy-Guider also features rotational adjustment, along with a large pick-off prism, all of which help to make bright guide-star selection a breeze. Lumicon's 1.25" and 2" Newtonian/Refractor Easy-Guiders drop into 1.25" and 2" eyepiece holders, respectively. They use your telescope's optics directly for pinpoint guiding accuracy. This method is superior to using guide-scopes, which can flex with respect to your main telescope. The filter compartment for the 2" Lumicon Newtonian/Refractor Easy-Guider is located past the plane of the pick-off prism, which is on the camera side of the Lumicon Easy-Guider. This allows you to guide with unfiltered starlight - only the camera light is filtered - a real bonus! The compact design of the Lumicon Newtonian/Refractor Easy-Guider allows for installation in seconds. Some Newtonians may require a low-profile focuser to attain sufficient in-travel (see Easy Guiders under Frequently Asked Questions-FAQs).Note: The following accessories are required for photography: A guiding (reticle) eyepiece (or auto-guider); a camera-specific T-ring. Reticle eyepieces and T-rings may be purchased separately from Lumicon.
