Meade Series 6000 Guide Scope - 50 mm

The Series 6000 50mm Guide Scope is the perfect compact guide scope solution for your astrophotography. It conveniently fits in the finderscope attachment base for Meade APO Refractors and includes a new base for use with Meade's SCT & ACF telescopes. Whatever happened to piggybacking a larger 80mm refractor on the telescope to autodguide? Autoguider cameras and control software now guide at such a high rate of accuracy that a smaller guide scope with less focal length can be used. This saves weight and provides a much bigger field of view, ensuring you will find a guide star no matter where in the sky you are pointed.

The 50mm Guide Scope employs a premium multi-coated doublet objective, edge-blackened for maximum contrast. A solid guide scope that does not flex is critical.  This 50mm Guide Scope is equipped with 6 oversized adjustment screws in a solid dual-ring aluminum mounting bracket. Focusing is easy and accurate, thanks to the Meade-designed helical fine focuser, which keeps your autoguider locked in the same orientation when focusing.

Accepts 1.25-inch cameras, eyepieces, and T-threads. An extension tube is also included to accommodate a larger range of autoguider cameras. It’s an ideal combination with our LPI-G and LPI-G Advanced cameras!

Great Scope BUT doesn’t fit older LX200 SCT’s as Meade claims

The guide scope itself is high quality. The provided mounting system, however IS NOT COMPATIBLE with older LX200 SCT’s as Meade claims. The threaded holes on my 2004 LX200GPS 12” F/10 SCT have a wider foot print than the supplied shoe. The shoe provided is not even for the LX200 series. Fortunately I found an adapter here on OPT made by Idea engineering that I believe will work. We shall see. The product description should disclose that YOU MUST ALSO PURCHASE a ***** mount adapter to make this work! After tax and shipping my Guidescope just cost me another $40.
