    The dovetail included it’s so wide. This situation is very frustating because the problem it is so simple to fix: you need to include in the package an optional shoe of 30mm base in order to attach in the standard brackets available in most of the world’s telescopes. Please review this design….

      this is because 60280 is a big guider scope and we are afraid the finder shoe is not stable enough to mount it
      and may cannot keep balance

    Do the 1/4″ holes on the bottom of the dovetail match the mounting holes on a Celestron C14 OTA?

      there is 2 1/4″ screw holes under the dovetail
      you can consider how to mount it with the 1/4″ screw hole

    I need to adapt this to a Meade / ES shoe on my LX90 8″ SCT. Can you recommend a vixen style shoe that will mount on my SCT using the 2 factory screw holes? What is the outside diameter of the main tube where the rings are placed? Thanks. Love your cameras and OAG.

      I think you need one dovetail bar and another vixen style shoe to mount the scope
      but we don’t have such bar and shoe, you can find them in other stores
      the outside diameter of the ring is 80mm

    Hi. Can you please provide the exact hole pitch distance for the 5-1/4″ holes on the bottom of the Vixen dovetail. I’m trying to find a suitable dovetail clamp which i can bolt directly to the guide scope vixen dovetail.

    Still struggling to find something to mount this in. I don’t want to screw it directly to the scope, I want something that the dovetail slides into. I ordered a mount for a “standard Vixen Style Dovetail and it is too small to accept the dovetail mounted on this guidescope. What are people using to mount this and where can I get it?

      actually the standard Vixen Style Dovetail shoe should works
      such like the one on your mount

    Does the focuser lock with thumb screws so the focus won’t drift when using as guidescope?

    You mention that the mounting shoe is a standard Vixen Style Dovetail. Where does one obtain such a mounting shoe as in dealing with High Point – one of your distributors, they want to sell me a whole new guide scope ring set and mounting?

    Thanks!

      there is 1/4″ screw under the dovetail, so the shoe is not required actually

    May I use this scope as a finder scope by adding a standard Celestron diagonal and a reticle eyepiece? Will it reach focus? Thanks.

      diagonal cannot reach focus with this scope, but you can use eyepiece directly

    Ok, I finally reached focus with my DSLR using your own (very slim, 1.5 mm gap) ZWO 1.25″ T-thread eyepiece adapter. I was using a different adapter with a 3 mm gap, and using that, I was barely (but not quite) reaching focus. You have a very tight tolerance there, I may suggest you giving this guide scope a slightly more forgiving design. Thanks.

    Just bought ZWOptical finder-guider scope. Nice, simple and light-weight design, but I cannot reach proper focus with my Canon EOS Rebel XT DSLR. I removed the short OTA tube section, I used a T-mount plus 1.25″ T-thread nose-eyepiece adapter, turned the rotating focuser all the way in, but nope, I still cannot reach focus. Need a still shorter focus OTA length, but how??? Please help!!!
