Introducing our best-in-class solution for your deep space astrophotography autoguiding needs: the Orion Awesome Autoguider Pro Refractor Telescope Package. Combining the newly reissued ShortTube 80 refractor with the StarShoot AutoGuider Pro Mono camera and new Orion 120mm Guide Scope Rings and Dual-Width Clamps system, this pro autoguiding package will ensure you get pinpoint stars in your long-exposure astrophotographs every time.

This is the perfect autoguiding solution for deep sky imaging, whether your main imaging instrument is a refractor, reflector, or Cassegrain. Here is a breakdown of what's included with the Awesome Autoguider Pro Package.

Orion ShortTube 80 Refractor Telescope Optical Tube Assembly Our popular ShortTube 80 is back! With a focal length of 400mm (f/5), it provides a wide field-of-view, making guide star acquisition a breeze. Its all-metal focuser with drawtube lock provides rigid support for the autoguider camera. A dovetail shoe molded into the focuser accepts optional Orion finder scopes.

Orion StarShoot AutoGuider Pro Mono Boasting a high quantum efficiently of 74%, this ultra sensitive autoguider serves up more guide star candidates than less-capable cams. Its 1/3" format CMOS monochrome chip has 1.2MP resolution and a frame rate of up to 200 FPS.

Orion 120mm Guide Scope Rings with Dual-Width Clamps This solid guide scope mounting system features a pair of aluminum rings with a 120mm (4.7") inside diameter, each outfitted with three plastic-tipped metal thumbscrews for adjusting the aim of the guide scope. Each ring is mounted on a machined aluminum dovetail clamp that sports two grooves to accommodate either Vixen or Losmandy style dovetail plates (sold separately).

1.25" Orion Extension Tube An anodized aluminum extension tube provides the needed back focus distance for focus of guide stars.
