What a fantastic mini guider that is designed for precise guiding. Great performance and focuses at the same distance as an eyepiece. It also makes a heck of an intro planetary imager.

Product Description

The ZWO ASI290MM Mini is the precise guider of the mini line.  All of the guiders do their job very well, but the ASI290MM Mini has a 2.9um pixel size giving you a 30% improvement in guiding precision over the ASI120 for example.  And before we get lost in the mindset of being a guider, it is a great introductory planetary imager as well.  Its small size makes it convenient to use in your imaging platform without causing much of a fuss.
