Astrodon Mega MOAG Off-Axis Guider

Astrodon Mega MOAG Off-Axis Guider

MOAG means Manual Off-Axis Guider, a non-moving part of your optical train.

The MegaMOAG is the largest member of the Astrodon off-axis guider product line. It is specifically designed to accommodate the larger CCD detectors (36 x 36 mm), such as the Kodak KAF16803E and KAF9000E used on larger telescopes with 4" accessories and extension tubes. It is a 4"-to-3" version of Astrodon's popular MonsterMOAG, where the camera side accepts all 3" MonsterMOAG adapters. Furthermore, it retains the thin 1.25" back focus of MonsterMOAG, and is an ideal choice for systems having minimal backfocus such astrographs made by Planewave Telescopes. It also integrates nicely with the 4" systems at the back of larger RC Optical Systems Ritchey-Cretien telescopes.
