      3.The mini camera can be connected to HEQ 5 Pro.

    Hi Sam
    When I use this with a ASI290MM Mini I cannot achieve focus using SharpCap. What am I doing wrong ?

      You could try to focus on the building on daylight, or adjust the black focuser on the guide scope.

    Katherine, As a follow up to my previous comment Feb 28. In the post by user Swap on Jan 22 he too is finding focus difficult. The product description days it is compatible with all ZWO cameras. This scope works very well with the planetary style cameras because the sensor aligns with the end of the scope with a 1 1/4 nose piece . The mini cameras which are the preferred size for autoguiding have the sensor close to the end of the camera which means even with the extension added to the camera very little of the camera can be inserted into the scope to reach focus. In fact I have a 31mm long par focal spacer ring to maintain the camera at focus with very little insertion overlap. This situation is made worse since I did not receive the second longer camera extension with my 290 mini. I still think offering a 31mm long extension tube for the scope is a better solution to extension tubes for the camera. ZWO have gained a good reputation for the cameras and with ZWO’s move into high end with the ASI 6200 let’s not let easily corrected shortcomings in the accessory line up erode that reputation.

      There is an extender comes with ASI290MM mini, which can solve the problem you mentioned.
      Do you mean you did not receive the 1.25″ (25mm extension)extender?
      If you didn’t, please send an email to support@zwoptical.com

    I have using this scope for some time using an ZWO 290MC with no problems. I have just purchased the ZWO 290 mini and while I can reach focus the camera is not inserted very far into the focuser.
    Between the main tube and the focuser is a 35mm wide spacer. May I suggest ZWO add a longer spacer ring to replace or extend the existing spacer to allow full insertion of the mini range of cameras The addition of the new M42 helical focuser to this or a pro model would be nice at the same time using an existing product to increase supplier order quantities.
    I pre ordered and purchased the ASI 2600MC from ZWO Store back in December. Delivery time has slipped from January to March because ZWO were overoptimistic with delivery times and now Corona Virus. Do you now have a firm delivery time for this new camera.
    Thank you

      You can add a 1.25″ extender to the mini camera.
      If everything goes smoothly, the shipment will be made in the beginning of March.

    I have this scope and ZWO 290mm mini guide camera. Somehow I do not get the stars in focus. Does it require any extensions for back focus?

    Can you tell me the distance between the 2 screws that secure the 2 bars together. It’s the 2 screws that you see when you turn the scope/mount upside down. Thank you.
