The Pegasus Astro Scops OAG is a motorized off axis guider that is designed for remote operation and providing the ability allows adjust a guide camera focus with great precision. When operated via ASCOM focus drivers or standalone software, the Scops OAG provides an easy solution for guiding an equatorial mount.
The Scops OAG does not require an external controller. Its body includes all electronics and only one USB cable is needed to provided power and control to the OAG. A stepper motor ensures absolute position of the focus point. Profile each filter that might have a different focus position and just click the filter in the supplied software to precisely set the OAG to the stored position.
A large 10×10 mm fully multicoated and anti-reflection mirror offers full illumination to the guiding camera. Stars are round and bright across all the OAG ‘s field. The prism height can be adjusted to allow better illumination of the field of view of the guiding camera. If your imaging /main camera sensor is large, the prism can be moved (with a set screw) upwards to prevent blockage of the sensor’s optical path.
The Scops OAG offers a robust design to support a heavy load of equipment. The thickness is 31.4mm, capable to support heavy imaging equipment. It has a 50 mm of clear aperture and accepts M54 threaded adapters on both sides. It also has 6 screw holes that allows it to be sed in combination with Pegasus Astro’s Falcon Rotator without extra adapters.
