- Skyguider Pro
I bought this hoping for a solution for mounting my ASIAIR Pro and Guide camera. Unfortunately, I didn’t really need it. However, I thought the quality was great and decided to keep it. It would be nice if a couple of extra screws came along with it, but I didn’t expect any since none were specified in the ad.
Solid machine work. Nice anodized finish!
I have a few different set ups of Mirrorless/150-600mm lens, Z61 with ZWO Astro camera, and others. I bought a short plate thinking to save weight for balancing with my Skyguider Pro...but many times had to push the short dovetail halfway out to balance it properly at long FL. The long dove plate (with the WO mount and and hardware: get them!) balances perfectly. It is important to take the time to balance your system. It makes a world of difference in keeping your stars sharp and not having the tracker overwork to keep up. Sliding the telescope/lens/camera dovetail plate to balance (instead of just moving the weight on the WO extension) after pointing to your target is key to good balance. And then double checking your polar alignment of course.
Finely machined and the finish was perfect. Quality!
Well built, beautiful, and good slot and tapped screw hole placements
