Finder & Guider 60280 with rotating helical focuser

ZWO 60mm Finder and Guide Scope with 280mm focal length, tube rings, dovetail bar and rotating helical focuser

Finder Scope
It can also be used as a straight through finder scope with a standard 1.25" eyepiece (not included), but there is a possibility that we'll come up with a modified version that can be used with a star diagonal or amici prism as well...

Telephoto lens

Thanks to its modular design, by removing the last 40mm section of the tube (nearest to the focuser), we gain enough back focus to accomodate a dSLR camera behind the focuser. You'd also need an optional camera-specific T-ring and a T-thread to 1.25" nosepiece adapter as well.
So this way, you even get a fast f/4.67 tele lens of modest quality.
This is of course not the main attraction of this scope, but why not to try it this way as well...
