Setup Guide

1. Calculate the correct distance for your imaging train. For example, you need to attach a 21mm extension to the ASI071 to reach 55mm back focus (17.5mm + 21mm + 16.5mm = 55mm).

2. Take off the guider prism part from the OAG and attach the OAG body to the telescope.

3. Insert the prism back into the OAG body.

4. Mount the guide camera.

5. Screw the T2 or M48 adapter on the imaging camera according to your cameras mounting type.

6. Mount the camera on to the OAG in the correct position and lock the 3 screws.

7. The final setup.

8. Check that the prism does not block the imaging area.

9. Use the guiding screw to adjust the guiding cameras focus. This is best done during daytime to make sure both the imaging and guiding cameras can focus at the same position.

Your Question:

Q1. How can I remove flex / wobble with the Prism stalk of my ZWO OAG?

Once you have adjusted the ZWO to be parfocal with the Imaging camera and have the Prism stalk adjusted to the position you require then you can tighten the two grub screws, one on the OAG body and one on the stalk, to remove any flex/wobble

The Allen keys required are supplied with the OAG
