    I have this guide scope and the ASI290 mini. To achieve focus I’m having to screw the front portion of the scope all the way out and also pull the 290 mini almost all the way out the back. I feel like I’m doing something wrong. Is there an adapter I should be using?

    Good day. I purchased your ASI120MC-S (color) × 1 from you
    ZWO-ASIAIR × 1
    ZWO Mini Guide Scope × 1

    Can a Levenhuk T800 PLUS camera be paired? I want to use it as a guide.

    When I directly screw zwo camera to back ring the cable is pointing directly downwards and I can’t mount it on the dovetail for my guidescope as there is no room to bend the cable and the plug won’t bend. Is there anyway to rotate the mini scope tube so that the plug doesn’t end up pointing directly downwards?

      If it happens, I think use another connection method, 1.25″ nose-piece.

    Is this suitable to guide a 714mm focal length scope?
    Can you lock the focus on this guidescope or do you have to refocus every time?
    Thanks.

      :

      714mm is a little longer, usually we recommend to guide for 500mm and shorter. The focuser can be locked, you only need to focus once.

    Is this OK with the ASI120MM Mini? I have a 1200mm focal length Newtonian – would this be a good guide scope? I plan to mount it on the finder scope mount.

      that’s too short to guide 1200 scope
      you’d better use OAG

    If I use ASI120MC-S with this ZWO mini guide scope, what is the max imaging focal length you would recommend on my main telescope (using ASI1600MC-C)? Also, what magnitude star can I guide on using the ZWO mini guide scope.

    Thank you!

      :

      I think 500mm should be ok
      magnitude star depends on exposure

    Is there a way to remove the guider ring and dovetail and just use the guide scope tube with the ASI120MM guide camera? The camera can then be mounted on a dovetail using its mounting screw at the bottom.

      ASI120MM can screw on the mini scope with it’s M42 threads.
      I think mount the scope and camera with camera back side screw is not stable. You’d better to use dovetail of miniscope.
