Our Ultimate Telescope Guiding Bundle sets you up to start imaging the way you want to. Included in this bundle is a top-notch monochrome guide camera, the ZWO ASI120MM Mini, the ZWO ASIAIR Plus smart wifi controller, and a solution for easy autoguiding, the Universal Astro 32mm f/4 Mini Guide Scope.
The ZWO ASI120MM Mini is a top-notch monochrome guide camera, well-suited for both planetary imaging and acting as a guider to amplify the usefulness of other astronomy instruments. Despite being qualified as a 'miniature' camera, it still operates at a high level of performance; with a peak QE over 75%, a typical read noise of only 4.0e, a pixel array of 1280 x 960, and a pixel size of only 3.75 micrometers, it qualifies as a powerhouse despite its small size. It achieves all of this while presenting a small and slender profile, taking up a minimum of space in your imaging train. The interface for this camera is a Type C USB 2.0 port, similar to that found in several mobile phone types.

Key Features of the ZWO ASIAIR Plus
A built-in WiFi Antenna It can greatly increase the WiFi signal compared to the ASIAIR Pro, making the WiFi connection between your device and ASIAIR Plus more stable. The signal range will also be wider.
Four newly-added Indicators for the DC-12V outputs There will be a new update of the ASIAIR app when the ASIAIR Plus is released and you can check the power status easily and monitor consumption in real-time.
Newly-added Type C USB Port It will allow you to directly connect the ASIAIR Plus device to your computer via USB cable to transfer data, instead of pulling out a SD card and using a card reader to transfer data.
Smaller and Lighter Compared to ASIAIR PRO, the ASIAIR Plus has made some big changes in its appearance and weight: 24% thinner and 13% lighter. The ASIAIR Plus is made out of aluminum and processed by CNC tech, which will effectively prevent the ASIAIR Plus from dust and dew, also making the whole device sturdier and more durable. The top uses laser carving technology to show the constellations of Cassiopeia, Ursa Major, and Ursa Minor in the sky.
ASIAIR OS runs on eMMC storage The new system will provide a smoother and more stable using experience. We also added a new feature: Auto Recovery Mode – When the ASIAIR Plus cannot boot up, the system will detect the faults and recover by itself. The internal storage of the ASIAIR Plus that is available for saving images and videos is 20GB.

Universal Astro 32mm f/4 Mini Guide Scope
A perfect solution for quick and easy autoguiding. This Mini Guide Scope is a small and lightweight guide scope compatible with nearly any system, even star trackers. It's designed with bright, wide-field optics with front and rear dust covers. The mini guide scope can be installed on your telescope tube or camera hot shoe (with separate adapter) by using the 1/4"-20 screw holes at the bottom of the finder shoe.
The mini guide scope attaches to the telescope tube to help the telescope accurately track celestial objects when paired with a guide camera. If the guide scope deviates, it will be corrected by the tracking of the telescope mount using guiding software like PHD2.
