When it comes to buying guide scopes, there are many options to choose from. There are guide scope sizes that range from mini guide scopes that don't need a tripod and can be mounted on your binoculars, to full-size guide scopes that need their own mount and tripod. Knowing what you'll use it for will help you decide which size is best.
The most common type of guide scope is the standard guide scope, which is used by many astronomy enthusiasts and professional astronomers alike because they're well suited to observing objects near the celestial equator. When choosing a full-size guide scope you should look at the focal length, magnification capability, and aperture size. Aperture size refers to the diameter of the guide scope lens or mirror. The aperture affects how much light enters the telescope system and controls how bright objects appear in an image. If your guide scope has an aperture greater than 70 mm then you may want to consider purchasing a camera adapter (or webcam) so that you can take high-quality photos or video during your observations.
When it comes to a mini guide scope, its small size makes it great for attaching to binoculars so that you can observe any object in low-light situations like star parties or on cloudy days. Mini guide scope is also easier to transport since it doesn't need its own tripod or mount.
Find a Guide Scope that fits your needs
There are a number of different types of guide scopes available on the market, each with its own unique features. When you buy guide scopes from Telescopes Canada, you will be able to find the best match for your needs.
An ioptron guide scope is a great option if you're looking for something simple and affordable, or if you're just getting started with astrophotography. The lens is 50mm in diameter so it'll cover your camera sensor fairly well. If you're looking for something that can handle more demanding conditions and provide clearer views, then a skywatcher guide scope may be a better option as they have bigger lenses and offer better alignment accuracy than smaller models. For these reasons, they're one of the most popular choices among experienced astrophotographers who want to take their photography game to the next level. Guide scope astrophotography is a good choice if you need something fast and light to travel with, without sacrificing too much quality.
