Orion Awesome AutoGuider (24770)

Accuracy is the name of the game in Astrophotography - a poorly polar-aligned instrument or slight discrepancies in the running gear of a system's drives will lead to less than spectacular images. Autoguiding is in most cases the quickest, easiest and most cost-effective way of combatting these issues. The Orion Awesome Autoguider package comprises of the Orion ShortTube 80mm Refractor, the intuitive Orion StarShoot Autoguider, 1.25" Extension tube and a set of two adjustable guiding rings and dedicated mounting bar. When run with the bundled PHD Autoguiding software, the Awesome Autoguider will assist the Astrophotographer in pursuit of the cleanest and sharpest of images.

Please note: not a standalone system, requires connection to a PC or Intel Mac to use. May require further mounting accessories or some drilling for your telescope system. 10" and above might require a doveplate system to mount the guider. Check your system requirements before purchase.
