The OGMA OAG M48 Off-Axis Guider allows astrophotographers to use the same telescope for both guiding and imaging. As the OGMA team notes, “After adding the OAGM48 to your imaging train, the small prism inside the Off-Axis Guider will redirect a portion of the star field that usually doesn’t fall on the primary camera sensor to a guiding camera inserted into the 1.25” holder.”
The OGMA OAG M48 Off-Axis Guider comes with its dedicated helical focuser so there is no need for a separate focuser. This integrated smooth helical focuser will help achieve precise focus with a guiding camera. The prism can be moved up and down for a precise placement.
The OAG M48 is compatible with a wide range of telescopes and cameras. It has an M48 thread on the side of the telescope and multiple tapped holes on the side of the camera. These holes are designed to match most filter wheels that are currently available on the market. And the OAG M48 can be used with or without a filter wheel. A 20mm width adapter is provided that can be used in place of a filter wheel to help you achieve proper back focus on both cameras.
