The first of it's kind, the AstroHutech Hinode Solar Guider is an autoguider designed specifically for solar observation and imaging. Perfect for a grab and go set up and outreach, the Hinode Solar Guider does not require a precise polar alignment. Make solar observing fun again and cut down on post processing times, by taking away the routine of tracking the sun manually while maintaining a perfectly centered position. A built in coarse adjustment finder, helps you find the sun quickly!

Requiring no sunspots to track, the Hutech Hinode Guider will track on the solar disc.  Conveniently compact, the optics, sensor and filter are in one small package so a separate guide scope and camera are not required! A one time easy calibration makes this accessory nearly plug and play.  Simply choose AM or PM tracking.   Paired with a hand controller, you can leave your laptop at home.  Audio cues and visual LED aides let you quickly align.  Also fully PC compatible with upgradeable firmware. This guider is also compatible with any ST4 or Losmandy style mount guider port.

Made to pair easily with virtually any telescope or mount, a universal mounting block is included and is compatible with most finder scope mounting blocks available on the market. 

Compact and light weight!  106mm x 67mm x 28mm, 270g (9.52 ounces)

Questions & Answers

Product Questions

Is the Hutech Solar Guider compatible with an AP Mach 1?

Which mounts are compatible with the Hutech Solar Guider? I'm considering the following mounts:
-- Celestron Advanced VX Equatorial mount
-- Orion Skyview Pro Equatorial
-- Orion Sirius EQ-G Equatorial

I purchased a Lunt LS60 solar scope from you, and want a mount with the Hutech guider.
when using the guide port of say the AVX mount, are you supposed to have the tracking turned off on the mount itself?
