Lumicon 1.25" Newtonian Easy Guider One of the most powerful astrophotographic accessories on the market today for Newtonian Telescope photography - the low-profile 1.25" LUMICON® NEWTONIAN EASY-GUIDER.
The easy-to-use Lumicon Newtonian Easy-Guider incorporates a unique, patented, radial adjustment for finding bright, off-axis photographic field guide stars. The Lumicon Newtonian Easy-Guider has not only radial, but rotational adjustments, along with a large off-axis pickoff prism that helps make bright guide star selection a breeze. The Lumicon Newtonian Easy-Guider uses your Newtonian telescope optics directly for superior pinpoint guiding accuracy.
Never again will your guided photographs be ruined by differential flexure that leaves star trails. The filter compartment for the 1.25" Lumicon Newtonian Easy-Guider is located above the plane of the pick-off prism - that is, on the camera side of the Easy-Guider, thus allowing you to guide with unfiltered starlight. Only the camera light is filtered - a real bonus!
Before the advent of the Easy-Guider, only expensive off-axis guiders were available for Newtonian telescopes, requiring large mounting holes drilled into the main tube, plus extensive optical modification. The low-profile design of the Easy-Guider allows installation in seconds into a standard 2" focusing mount. Little or no modification is needed. All Lumicon Easy-Guiders install in seconds on all telescope types, and have both rotational and radial adjustments for simplified guide-star selection from several square degrees of sky.
