Guidemount with GP Clamp and Finder Shoe

Not in stock

Price includes VAT, plus delivery

The Guidemount is an extremely versatile accessory. It features a GP Dovetail on which is mounted a small GP saddle clamp (removeable) and also a finder shoe. In between these is an adjustable 1/4" screw that can be used to mount a conventional camera like a DSLR.

This layout allows you to mount a small telescope and combine it with a standard finder or a small guidescope. Alternatively you could fix a DSLR directly and a guidescope. There are numerous possibilites. Normally with small telescopes, fitting a finder to them causes problems as the significant extra weight this adds causes balance problems. If the finder bracket is mounted to the focuser this can also make it difficult to rotate. The Guidemount solves all these problems
