PF0036 – Alpy guiding module
855,60 € incl. VAT - 713,00 € excl. VAT
Alpy guiding module is the key element to use your Alpy 600 spectroscope to observe the stars.
The guiding module answers this question: it allows to visualize the field of view of the telescope, as well as the slit (observed by the front of the spectroscope), with a guiding camera. It is an essential help to point at, as well as to guide and autoguide the telescope as soon as your observation lasts more a few seconds.
The principle of the guiding module is simple: we replace the standard slit of the Alpy 600 by a mirroring and slightly tilted slit, which sends back the image of the telescope towards the guiding camera (or an eyepiece, with the optional eyepiece holder). See the sketch below (extracted from the book ” Succesfully Starting in Astronomical Spectroscopy – A Practical Guide”).
We highly recommend this module if you wish to use your Alpy 600 on a telescope.
