The Altair MG32 Mini Guide Scope is a small "set and forget" high quality optical tube, which is compatible with the sensitive GPCAMv2 AR0130 Mono Camera, and most small guide scopes with a C or CS Thread on the front.
The MG32 is small, very compact, and light - ideal for portable wide field imaging. You can mount it on just about any telescope focuser with the included Universal Finder Bracket, and of course all Altair refractors. Two Stainless Steel M4 screws are included.
Small and accurate: This is the perfect guider for your iOptron SmartEQ PRO, SkyGuider, Star-Adventurer or other small mount. It delivers good accuracy with refractors and camera lenses up to 600mm focal length. Weight is about 350 grams and length is 165mm.
Perfect for polar alignment with SharpCap PRO and Altair GPCAM: If you order an Altair GPCAM camera with your MG32, you get a free 1 year SharpCap PRO software license with the camera, so you can polar align your telescope or camera lens with extreme accuracy out of the box in minutes. Your MG32 doesn't even need to be perfectly aligned with your optical tube. You can just point the finder scope within 5 degrees of the north or south celestial pole and the software will do the rest. This alone will revolutionise your imaging.
Zero flex, and your guide camera will stay in perfect focus forever: The camera is threaded into the optical housing, so you don't need to worry about differential flex. The finder scope front lens is rotated to focus, then the locking ring is tightened up. You are now focused forever.
Fits most existing finder scope rings: The tube diameter (white part) is 36mm enabling and 85mm long enabling it to be used with most finder scope rings. The full length is 165mm with dewshield retracted, 185mm with dewshield fully extended.
