Orion can guide you to better quality astrophotos, literally, with our Awesome AutoGuider Refractor Telescope Package. This affordable and effective autoguiding solution can be added to virtually any astrophotography system to improve guiding accuracy so you get awesome astrophotos every time.

No matter what telescope you’re using for long-exposure astrophotography, precise guiding is an absolute requirement to get pinpoint star images. Using both a dedicated autoguider device and guide scope telescope is arguably the best way to optimize the accuracy of any astrophotography pursuit.  Employing a complete autoguiding setup is especially useful when going after images of faint deep-sky objects when multiple lengthy exposures are required.

This complete Orion-exclusive package makes autoguiding easy, and its affordable price is easy on your wallet. The Awesome AutoGuider package contains everything you need to obtain precise tracking accuracy for your astrophotography setup. Let’s take a closer look at each of the included items:

Orion ShortTube 80 Refractor Telescope Optical Tube Assembly
The popular Orion ShortTube 80 refractor telescope is included for use as a guide scope. With a short focal length of 400mm, the ShortTube 80 makes an ideal guide scope since the fast f/5.0 optical tube provides an expansive wide field-of-view, making guide star acquisition a breeze.  With fully multi-coated optics and a light weight of 2.4 lbs., the ShortTube 80 refractor has become a popular guide scope thanks to its versatile design and no-nonsense performance.   


Orion 105mm ID Pair of Guide Scope Rings
The included set of two cast-metal rings are designed to hold the ShortTube 80 refractor and provide a wide range of alignment adjustment so the guide scope can be aligned with your astrophotography telescope easily. Each Guide Scope Ring features three non-marring nylon alignment screws for precise alignment of guide scope without scratching.

Orion Guide Scope Ring Mounting Bar
The rigid anodized aluminum Guide Scope Ring Mounting Bar is included to attach the entire Awesome AutoGuider Package to an astrophotography telescope. Attach the Guide Scope Rings to the Mounting Bar with the included hardware and then install the ShortTube 80 refractor into the Guide Scope Rings. Then couple the entire Awesome AutoGuider package to your astrophotography telescope. Pre-drilled through-holes allow easy attachment.


With its total weight of just 4.5 lbs., the Orion Awesome Autoguider package can easily be added to virtually any astro-imaging set-up without exceeding your imaging-capable EQ mount’s payload capacity.
