Bought this as a guide scope for my 72mm refractor (WO Megrez 72). I set it up in day time using the ASICAP software from the ZWO website to check all was working and to get rough infinity focus by adjusting the camera position within the miniscope. Fine focus was then achieved under the stars using the helical focuser. The only problem I had was that initially my PHD2 guiding software wouldn't recognise the camera (though it did recognise my other ZWO imaging camera). After updating to the latest version of PHD2 this problem was fixed.
It was a little off-putting to see how much less sensitive/noisier the guiding output is compared to my imaging output, and I do wonder whether a 50mm guide scope might be a better combination with the ASI120. But having said that so far the guiding performance has been good and appears well-matched to the imaging optical chain. And the scope/camera combination is very good value so I'm very happy with my purchase.
