miniGuideScope – an ultra-lightweight guide scope for QHY5-II Series. When the pixel of guide camera becomes small and QE becomes high, you may no need big guide scope. The small pixel can detect the guide error in a short focal length. When the focal length reduced, the FOV become bigger. You can find the bright guide star very easily.
QHYCCD’s new miniGuideScope is just based this idea. QHY5L-II has 74% high QE, 4 electron readout noise, and 3.75um small pixels. This camera is ideal for the short focal guide scope.
miniGuideScope is a f=130mm Diameter=30mm ultra-small telescope with F4.3 ratio. It has no complex focal adjust system. Just rotate the front part focuser it can get fine focal adjustment. There is a locker to fix the focuser position. When it gets focus you can lock it and no need focus again in the future.
The miniGuideScope has a sharp star point than the industry long focal lens.
