Olivon Off-Axis Guider

Ultra-low profile – only 15mm thick. The new Olivon Off-Axis Guider is one of the lowest profile off-axis guiders. Despite this, no compromise has been made between the function and operating comfort of this versatile off-axis guider. There is no mechanical flexure. The mount load is dramatically reduced. There is no need for a guide scope and the setup remains very compact. You work with the main telescope’s resolution and focal length, not with the typically lower resolution of a guide scope. The ultra-low profile design and the various available adaptations offer many unique advantages. The Olivon Off-Axis Guider can be used with correctors, DSLR and CCD cameras without losing tolerance for the distance between camera and corrector. The Olivon Off-Axis Guider also provides enough space for filter wheels or filter drawers.


Main Advantages of using an Off-Axis Guider:

  • Lighter and more compact than a separate guide scope, reducing the overall weight of your system and allowing lighter mounts to be used.
  • More precise tracking because of the elimination of flexures thus shifting images. The guiding camera and your main camera will always accurately move together.
  • Brighter and higher resolution images of the guide star on the guiding camera, making it easier to notice and correct tracking errors.

Main Advantages of the Olivon Giant Off-Axis Guider 60/30:

  • No Vignetting: With a large clear aperture of 60mm, the images will be bright, and there will be enough light even for large forma sensors.
  • Low Profile: The Off-Axis Guider is only 31 mm tall, which can accommodate a large focuser that corrects back focus problems.
  • Easily Locating Guide Stars: Two features on OL-GOAG 60/30 designed to help you scan the sky: the guiding turret can rotate 100° freely without affecting the main camera; the prism can be easily tilted with a thumbscrew.
  • Ergonomic Operations: No tools are necessary for operation. Controls were designed to be easy to use even with gloves on.
