Description

The Sky-Watcher & Clones to C Mount Adapter for Straight Through Finders Connects QHY5-II, QHY5L-II, Lodestar, Orion SSAIO, Mintron, Watec & DMK cameras, via the C mount adapter to Sky-Watcher, Celestron and Orion 8 x 50 & 9 x 50 straight through finders.

Most Celestron finders are the same as Sky-Watcher, and have 11 fine threads cut into the rear of the finder tube.

However some are different and we now have a separate adapter for those Celestron finders with 8 coarser (1mm) rear finder threads. Simply remove the eyepiece and holder to check.

[SPC900 / SPC800 to Sky-Watcher and GSO to C & T adapters are also available ]

Tests have confirmed that guiding is successful at focal lengths of up to 1500mm and more.

Stability is excellent if screws are tightened firmly and cables tied up.

Using the finder as a guide-scope reduces the weight and complexity of your imaging setup and the wide field of view guarantees finding suitable guide stars.

    A great purchase. Allows you to adapt a view finder into a guide scope, saving not just money but also lots of weight when weight becomes important depending on the mount you are using. Works great with the SX Lodestar x2 and QHY5L-II ccd guide cameras.
