Compatible with the new ZWO ASiair
A convenient tried & trusted auto-guiding solution based on the Startravel-80 and ZWO ASI-120MM-Mini.
Mounts quickly and easily to any existing vixen-type dovetail fitted atop your telescope tube-rings.
The telescope’s large 80mm objective has over 2.5x more light gathering ability than smaller 50mm guidescopes! That, and the camera’s sensitive mono sensor, means you will have no difficulty finding a suitable guide-star.
The purpose-made focus extender enables the camera to achieve focus without over-extending the focuser draw-tube.
Fitting is straightforward: Remove the Startravel-80's original plastic mounting plate then attach the ADM clamps to the ST80 tube-rings using the supplied M6 bolts. Then simply slide the clamps onto your existing dovetail fitted to the top of your telescope. (If you don't already have a dovetail atop your telescope we can supply one. Please email us for advice).
This is a great kit that gives you everything you need to add a guide scope to you setup. I bought this for a Skywatcher Evostar ED80 which needs a couple of extra parts - a medium 21cm Skywatcher dovetail and two 20mm long 1/4 whitworth screws or you won't be able to connect the kit to your scope.The ToupTek camera that comes in the bundle can also be used for video and imaging. Download the free PHD software to use the camera and all its features.And of course this is underpinned by the great service you get from FLO.
