Quick Overview

The ZWO Off Axis Guider Adapter Mk II is a revised edition of the popular ZWO OAG, offering a tab more adjustment possibilities than the original.

Lightweight and beautifully machined
16.5mm thickness
Large prism: 8x8mm (actually, it's a mirror)

Flexible adaptation to your camera and telescope via T2 (M42*0.75) and M48 threads
Fully compatible with all ZWO ASI cameras, but please contact us about which ZWO cameras we recommend for guiding. (The ASI174 chip is a bit too big for this mirror, so there will be strong vignetting in the guide image, therefore we'd recommend to use cameras with smaller chip for guiding).

Details

The ZWO Off Axis Guider Adapter is ideal for autoguiding larger and longer focal length telescopes, where a traditional guidescope would be inpractical to mount or insufficient in terms of focal length to guide large telescopes. Particularly of use to those with large Cassegrain telescopes, the ZWO Off Axis Guider Adapter provides a rigid mount for an autoguiding camera, which can be adjusted in 3 axes in order to get a perfect focus and lock on a guide star, via its periscopic prism.
