Convenient all-metal mini guide scope designed for use with the QHY5-II and other C/CS mount cameras. 

Guide cameras with small pixels and high QE often don't need need large guide scopes. Their small pixels can detect  guide errors with short focal lengths and the increased FOV makes finding a suitable guide star easier. 

The 30mm doublet objective and 130mm focal length results in a fast f4.3 focal-ratio. 

The rear C/CS thread enables direct coupling to a guide camera and a simple helical front focusing system provides fine focus adjustments. The focuser can be locked to maintain focus position. 

The metal thumbscrews are nylon tipped so that they won't damage the finish on the lens barrel. 

The base is shaped to fit a regular finderscope mounting shoe and has a 1/4" photo-thread underneath so it can be fitted to, say, a mini ball-&-socket tripod head.

Lightweight gem

i got a qhy mini guide scope to use with my qhy5l-11 as i didn't want anything to heavy ,i use it via sharcap to polar align too ,to give you an idea of fov you can get the disc of the moon in ,pretty much as light weight as you can get to guide,easily focussed and locked with a locking screw , my only little gripe is you cant adjust the holder so you can sync what you see in the eyepiece to what the camera sees without a little tinkering ,three adjustable screws on rear ring would make this better,would recommend though.

Miniguider makes an electronic finder as well

I bought this to use with my QHY5 II L to use as an electronic finder. It was ideal for what I wanted because of its short focal length and a field of view that was just right for my needs. It is surprisingly solid, light weight, easy to use and does what I wanted.
