Product QuestionsHi, does the William Optics 50mm Guide Scope White have a focuser? Can I use a standard eyepiece or with a guide camera such as Orion? Will I need extensions? ThanksQuestion by: HM0210 on Jan 19, 2015 6:38:48 AMThis guidescope does not have a standard focuser, but it has a helical adjustment with a lock ring that allows you to shift the focus by a few mm each way. An Orion guide camera should work without extensions needed, while some eyepieces may need to be pulled outward around 1/2" to allow them to reach focus.Answer by: Chris (Admin) on Jan 20, 2015 10:47:38 AMQuestion by: abraham shadbeh on Jul 5, 2015 9:37:00 AMUnfortunately, no. This finder was designed for guiding, so no effort was made to flip the image into a correct orientation as the extra prisms needed in the back to correct the image would make it difficult to use this as a guidescope. The William Optics 30mm finder is correct image, but their 50mm finders are currently all inverted and reversed.Answer by: Chris Hendren on Jul 5, 2015 1:11:00 PMWhat is the part number or link to the William optic straight through correct image finder? Can u recommend a straight though finder that has a correct left right image? Doesn't matter if its upside down.Question by: Abraham on Jul 5, 2015 1:51:00 PMThis williams optics finder will give you a correct image.
