Arcturus Guiding Platform
Arcturus Products is proud to introduce one of the finest adjustable aiming devices ever offered to amateur astronomers. The platform is designed to offer amateurs an alternative adjustable aiming device to guidescope rings. This device makes it possible to co-align two optical tubes or purposely offset two optical tubes to find a suitable guidestar for autoguiding. Designed to accept standard Vixen series dovetail bars and is capable of handling any guidescope or finderscope under 10lbs. The Arcturus guiding platform offers 10 degrees of Azimuth adjustment and 5 degrees of altitude adjustment. It is 6.4" long and adds approximately 2" of height (from top of dovetail on OTA to bottom dovetail on guidescope/finderscope) and is only 2lbs. All components are anodized aluminum and stainless steel for a beautiful finish and long lasting durability. It can be used either piggyback or Side-By-Side with the addition of a male to male dovetail inserted into one of the Side-By-Side adapters.
