Astrodon Mega MOAG Off-Axis Guider

The Mega MOAG Off-Axis Guider by Astrodon:

 

Astrodon's MOAG (Manual Off-Axis Guider) is 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-inch accessories and extension tubes. It is a 4-inch to 3-inch version of Astrodon's popular MonsterMOAG, where the camera side accepts all 3-inch MonsterMOAG adapters. Furthermore, it retains the thin 1.25-inch 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-inch systems at the back of larger RC Optical Systems Ritchey-Cretien telescopes.
