Usage Guider:

1.   please caculate the correct required distance for your imaging train at first

for example: you need to attach 21mm extender to ASI071 to reach 55mm back focus distance:17.5mm+21mm+16.5mm=55mm

 

2. Take off the guider prism part and attach OAG body to the telescope

Note: please make sure the prism won’t block the imaging area

Use the guiding screw to adjust the guiding camera’s focus.

You’d better do it at day time to make sure imaging camera and guiding camera can reach focus at the same position.

    Hello,
    Can you tell me what tool is used to unscrew the small grub screw that holds the prism?
    I need to put the prism back on, because due to a clumsy mistake the OAG fell off, and the prism came apart. It has a small chip, but I hope it can still work properly.
    Thank you very much for your help.
    PS: if necessary, do you sell in spare part just the prism or just the metal part holding the prism?

      The hexagon wrench which is in the OAG box can be used to unscrew screw.
      We sell the prism and the metal part together.

    I am interested to use a ZWO Off Axis Guider for the following system configurations:

    – ZWO ASI294 -> OAG -> Celestron Adapter T2/M48 -> Celestron SC 150/1500, as well as.
    – ZWO ASI294 -> OAG -> Newton Corrector -> Newton 200/1000 (e.g. Skywatcher Telescope N 200/1000 PDS

    However, ZWO offers two different OAGs, each with different prism size and price level
    – ZWOOAG – 8×8 mm prism and
    – OAG-L – 12×12 mm prism

    Two questions arise for me here:
    – My understanding is that the angle of view of the guider cam must be matched to the
    prism size.
    So, how do I come to a conclusion here which Guider Cam I can use with
    which prism size?
    – Would the ASI 120 mono be a suitable guider cam?

    Thx

      The OAG-L has a bigger prism than the OAG, both of them are suitable for the ASI294.
      But the OAG-L must work with mini camera as the guiding camera.
      If you would like to use 120 momo as the guiging camera, you must choose OAG.

    I have an LX90 8 inch SCT. I would like to get into night sky photography. I like the idea of the Asiair Pro and OAG. What configuration would you suggest if I want to use my Camon 6D as the imaging camera?

    Hello, Is the ZWO OAG compatible with the Celestron 9.25 in. Schmidt Cassegrain telescope? Is a special adapter required to fit the OAG to the scope? Do you sell this adapter? My local dealer could not find a way to fit the OAG on one of his Celestron scopes. Thank you.

    Hi

    Would the OAG work for guiding via a ZWO ASI Air Pro with a Celestron Edge HD8, ZWO 120 Mini? Or will the FOV via the OAG be below the 0.2degrees for plate solving?

      :

      Yes, the OAG can work with ZWO 120 Mini. And the OAG can attach to the thread which size is M48 or M42.
      It cannot be plate solving when the FOV is below the 0.2 degrees.

    How much does the OAG weigh? I looked in the description, specification and the Q&A and could not find this information. Trying to calculate the weight of my imaging equipment v. my visual equipment for balance and mount loading concerns. Thanks.

    Hi. I plan to use this with a skywatcher esprit 100 with the flattner. Would this work with the filter drawer and the zwo 294 mc pro? And is there enough thread that goes into the oag to support the whole thing?

    Thanks

    I am happy to use a ASI1600GT with my refractor scope. Now I would like to replace my guiding scope with an OAG. Could I just position this OAG in front of the 1600GT camera/EAF system and get my ASI120MM guiding cam in focus, possibly with the pelican focuser?

    Regards
    Franz

    Is this compatible with an SBIG STF-8300 and SBIG FW-8300 as my main imaging setup? I will be using an ASI290 as my guider. I’ve heard that it might be, but it’s possible I will need an adapter.

      We are not sure but you can pay attention to the thread that OAG provides to see if they can be connected.

    I’m about to order your ASI120MM-S (mono) and OAG with focuser for use with Meade LX200EMC classic SCT as soon as you answer my questions. No diagonal prism will be used. From visual back to Focal Reducer to this OAG to Filter wheel to 1600 MM Pro Mono The 120MM-S will sit on the OAG. do I need a focuser for this setup? Your refractor setup example picture does not use a focuser nor a 1.25″ nose piece. Will my LX200SCT be set up different? Will both the imaging camera ASI1600MMPro and guide camera ASI120MM-S be focused together since the LX200 has its own focus knob? Is this a good set up in combination with my LX200? I’ll eagerly await your response so I can order right away. Thank you.

      What is the balc focus of your telescope?
      Main camera and the guide camera share the same optical train and get focus at the same distance.
      You can calculate the back focus of main camera to calculate whether the guide camera will get focus at this situation.
